prevention and alert
With the onset of summer and the rainy season, SES-MG highlighted the importance of adopting prevention and control actions against the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which transmits dengue, zika and chikungunya viruses. .
Also according to the dossier, during the analysis of the data, it was noticed that the first epidemiological weeks of 2022 do not show a very high number of cases. However, this factor does not exclude the risk of an epidemic during this seasonal period which began in December 2021 and extends until June 2022.
The volume of rain that Minas Gerais received in January can cause numerous breeding sites. The state coordinator for arbovirus surveillance at the SES-MG, Danielle Capistrano, spoke on the subject.
