Home People Health and Esthetics Between coronavirus and dengue

Between coronavirus and dengue

In Cordoba, we generated a double front match. Not only are we attentive to the crown: two dengue deaths make us never lower our guard.

Health and Esthetics

 The general alertness of the country and the world  directly affects us. Therefore, many preventive measures are applied and taken into account by all Cordobese. However, like many other provinces, we also fight against dengue.  Two cases ended up in death  in our province and that generates another alert.

Laura López, head  of the Zoonosis Program at the Ministry of Health of Cordoba , spoke to the media.“This is the first time that a history of death with a diagnosis of dengue has been recorded in our province. In 2009 we had the first autochthonous cases, but we had never confirmed deaths before,” he reported.

That is why the situation is  increasingly complicated . Those affected were over 80 years of age. The deaths occurred in the towns of Balnearia and Marull. These sites had reported  outbreaks of dengue  at the beginning of the year. Marull's case was the first: an 87-year-old man. The second, in Balnearia, was an 83-year-old woman. She was taken care of in Arroyito.

 Double battle 

This  little monster  is still stalking us in the province. There are very many annual cases, and  prevention campaigns  are not available. Today, there  are 526 cases  reported in the province, demonstrating an  upward curve of dengue  in Cordovan  territory.Warning  about the world situation and coronavirus leaves dengue concern second, which is very risky for all the population, since our public health institutions are not in a position  to collapse  for all these reasons.

 Self-care , the use of spirals and repellent, and all possible measures that prevent our exposure to dengue, are necessary. What  aggravates the situation  is that the medical body is  very alert for coronavirus . And the symptoms of dengue are easily confused with a flu picture. This means that the victims of this mosquito are often  misdiagnosed  and do not receive appropriate medical treatment. Therefore, dissemination of information and awareness. We take care of each other!
