“In our last major outbreak, in 2019, there were over 40,000 dengue notifications and eight deaths, the following year notifications fell to 20,000, but we still had seven deaths. Dengue is a major concern that we have, because it generates a lot of stress in the public network, not to mention that it is cyclical”, explains the municipal health secretary, José Mauro Filho.

The method is a partnership between the Municipality of Campo Grande, the Fundação Osvaldo Cruz (Fiocruz), the World Mosquito Program Brazil (WMP Brasil) and the state government, which releases mosquitoes with the bacterium Wolbachia – which is present in 60% of insects in nature – thus preventing the development of viruses harmful to humans which are transmitted by Aedes.
