According to the study, the percentage of infestations in Cataguases is 2.82%
The Center for Endomic Control of the Municipal Health Institute held the fourth stage of the fourth list LIRAa and LIA in 2018. From 22 to 26 October 2002. These are the Quick Index Studies of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (LIRAa) and Amostral Index Survey (LIA), which are methodologies used to identify and map the presence of mosquito transmitting dengue and other diseases in the commune, an initiative that is supported by the Ministry of Health.
According to the coordinator of the Endemic Control Unit, Cosme Tadeu Alves da Costa, the fourth survey coincides with the rainy season of the year and should therefore be considered more important – not that other surveys are carried out every two months are not relevant – because this is the time most favorable for the spread of vectors . In this fourth stage, the number of agencies surveyed by endemic agents in the city was 1027, of which 29 showed the presence of Aedes aegypti, which corresponds to the rate of mosquito infection 2.82%.
The LIA results showed rural areas with the presence of vectors when 936 properties were surveyed, 11 of which had Aedes aegypti, which means an invasion rate of 1.17%. Ten centers were tested, and four obtained positive results for the mosquito. In rural areas, predominant settlements were vessels or jars of water, a vessel of vessels, generally drinking fountains, decorative fountains and building materials, as well as tires and other rolling materials that according to Cosme dos Santos can be removed. There were ten properties still present in the Aedes albopictus report, which means an infection rate of 1.07%.

Cosme dos Santos also said that as a strategy to combat vectors, Endemic Control Center maintains daily work in the field of focal treatment and elimination of deposits. Surveys show the most critical areas where work is done with more emphasis, acting on all blocks of areas where the results were positive, using larvicidal and mechanical controls, which is the elimination of deposits, activities that are immediately initiated after the results of LIRAa and LIA. The coordinator also said that according to several infecologists in this country, next year has a great chance of a dengue epidemic, because the rain in late 2018 was higher than in previous years, dengue is a seasonal disease and Studies show that epidemics occur every two years. "But you can break this cycle with the awareness of the population and the work of all of us, so that Dengue will be effectively eradicated from our country," he concluded. (Photos: archives)
