There is heat and dengue

High temperatures reactivate dengue alert. We tell you what you need to keep in mind to prevent it.

Santa Fe

The rains and the advent of high temperatures turned on the  alarms  again due to the eventual appearance of agents that transmit  diseases  . For this reason, the Ministry of Public Health Municipal of  Rosario  (Santa fe) reiterated general recommendations to avoid dengue dengue.

Since the transmitter is the  aedes aegypti mosquito, the priority is to eliminate all possible hatcheries, including containers that can accumulate water and enable the development of insect larvae.

In the municipal portfolio, they launched a series of recommendations and suggestions to prevent the development of dengue  mosquitoes  in areas and materials where it is often reproduced, such as buckets, bottles and tyres, among other items that may be found in homes.

In turn, it should be noted that in the presence of  symptoms  such as fever, pain behind the eyes, headache, muscle and joints, it is recommended, fundamentally, to put repellent, consult a  doctor  and not self-medicate.

 Priority recommendations  in the city are to empty buckets and cans where water can accumulate, plus bottles that are outdoors; putting tire covers under roof; keeping capped tanks  water ; clean animal drinkers every day, in a process of emptying, brushing and refilling them; keeping mosquito-free environments using spirals, pills or insecticides and use extra lasting repellents.

 On the trip 

When  traveling , it is recommended to use repellents on exposed skin and renew their application according to the product's instructions, and also spray the clothes with   repellent   .because mosquitoes can bite through fine fabric garments and wear long sleeves and long pants if outdoor activities are developed, use spirals or repellent tablets.

If sunscreen is used, the blocker should be applied first and wait at least ten minutes to apply the repellent on top.

For its part, it should not stop emptying or cleaning and covering reservoirs of stagnant water that may be mosquito  breeding sites  and it should be taken into account that the first hours of the morning and sunset are the hours in which the mosquito has the greatest activity.

 Prevention tasks 

The Municipality maintains actions to  prevent  diseases transmitted by aedes aegypti. In this regard, the activities of descacharrado that are carried out all year round must be strengthened and increased after the rains. It is about emptying, cleaning or covering reservoirs of  stagnant water - this task is one of the most effective ways to remove larvae and prevent reproduction of the vector.

In addition, within the framework of prevention tasks, different areas carry out  monitoring  of viral circulation in different areas of the city.

For this prevention modality, 18  ovitramps  were installed in different areas of  Tablada  neighborhood (where the last outbreak of the disease occurred), which determine whether or not there are eggs that develop the vector.

In the presence of symptoms such as fever, pain behind the eyes, headache, muscle or joint pain, it is recommended to apply repellent,  consult  a doctor and not self-medicate.
