In the ten territorial integrations bait (CIT), the glodaricide bait is available to all residents of the city of Posadas, an initiative that is part of the decentralization actions that have been developed to prevent the spread of rodents.
Each of the delivery points has a trained person in charge of making recommendations and all the necessary information for the proper handling of the poison and thus achieving optimum use.
At the same time, technicians from the Zonoses Department belonging to the Directorate for Epidemiology and Health Surveillance travel with temporary strategic sites to position that planters may have free access to this preventive element.
They have already visited farms 149 and 181, the municipality's central building, San Martin and the Plaza de Julio 9 and the headquarters of the Social Security Institute, located on the street Ayacucho near San Martin.
In addition, they reported from the municipality that those who are interested in receiving rodentian baits can also approach the headquarters of the zoo zones, located at the intersection of streets 22 de Diciembre and Bermudez, from 7:30 to 12:00.
Leptospirosis and hantavirus
The outbreak of hantavirus in Epyen, Chubut and other isolated cases in Salta, Entreos and the province of Buenos Aires, triggered people's alarms in front of the population of rats in the city of Posadas.
Although in Missiones there is no data for people infected with the Hunt virus in this latest period, warnings also come from cases of leptospirosis examined at Obera, as well as from a San Pedro neighbor who had to be treated in the Eldorado's Eye before the diagnosis the leptospirosis he received.
Municipal Health Secretary Alejandro Martinez said a few days ago that consultations and orders for larvae for the removal of rats delivered by the commune commune free of charge in each Territorial Integration Center (KIT) have been increasing since December last year.
"Demand has increased in recent weeks, especially due to cases of hantavirus in the southern part of the country, not so much due to leptospirosis," he said. Such was the requirement that what was intended for a month was exhausted for 20 days, was warned.
