“Unfortunately, the second year with hundreds of cases of dengue fever. Year after year, we have seen the numbers increase and the secretariat has done its part. We are asking the community once again to eliminate all Aedes breeders, this is the only way to avoid dengue.”
emphasized Andem Luiz Alves Almeida, Endemics Coordinator.
According to the coordinator, all the home visits in the Endemic sector have also been done.
– During the visits – which take place on average every 60 days in the residents’ homes – in addition to inspections and guidance, a notification and a fine are issued if necessary. However, we did not receive fines, but there is a need to raise community awareness that dengue kills. We will first guide you, pass on the right information about what to do and set deadlines. Failure to meet the deadlines (which can range from three to 15 days) will result in a fine. In addition, the Ministry of Health is in the process of concluding an emergency agreement to increase the number of indigenous factors, but I reaffirm that the substances are making the orientation, the “mouth-down” turning of bottles and objects, which must be done. citizen”,
