The Health Ministry of Chubu, led by Adrian Pitsi, will hold Thursday and Friday new actions on the ground in the city of Epune, next to the Malbrun Institute in the city of Buenos Aires, the Esquel Health Program and the community and local health teams as part of the access which is conducted before the epidemiological threat due to the emergence of Hantavirus.
In this regard, the provincial director of preventive pathologies and epidemiology, Theresa Strela, said on Thursday "will give continuity to field research work on the epidemiology of confirmed cases, a work done and systematized from the onset of unpredictability, from the identification of each of the 12 cases that have been confirmed for hantavirus. "
In return, Strela said "cross-cutting work tables will be set up between the technical teams of the Provincial Ministry of Health and the Esquel Program, the local health teams, the municipal authorities and the reference teams of the Malbrun Institute in Buenos Aires."
Within this framework, a "review and update of all the work done to date" will be carried out, he said, adding that he will also assess the "new lines of intervention that may arise" based on the presentations.
Talk to the community
Also, the provincial spokesman commented Friday that it would be "open conversation with the community," in which "we will share the conclusions of what was the work of the previous day and we will respond to the concerns of the population."
On the other hand, Strela addressed the characteristics of the epidemiological unpredictability and explained: "We are in the presence of what we call an epidemic. The occurrences that are added and added to the statistics have a time relation to what happened in early November. Everything is limited to the site (Epuyén) and an event that later caused later cases. No case has appeared elsewhere. "
