Since last Sunday, 55 more cases of the disease have been confirmed, bringing the accumulated since epidemiological year to 402.

During this week, 169 more notifications were registered, which now total 966 – of which 564 were discarded and 18 suspects are still under investigation. Two cases of dengue with warning signs (DSA) were also announced and there was no record of death caused by the disease since August 1 of last year.

The city’s neighborhoods with positive cases now number 73 (there were 68 in the last bulletin) and the regions of five basic health units – where 31,000 people live – are experiencing an outbreak of dengue: Centro de Saúde Escola, with 146 cases; Panorama Garden, with 61; Central Health Post, with 32; Guarani/Anchieta, with 30; and Jardim Cruzeiro, with 29 positive people.

Other locations are on alert – 26 de Junho, Cidade Alta, Jabuticabeiras, Jardim União, Jardim Lisboa, Ouro Branco, Primeiro de Maio, San Remo, Sonho Meu, Vitória Régia and the Rural Area, where eight cases have already been confirmed. With low incidence of dengue are the health units Bem-Estar, Industrial, São Cristóvão and the village of Nova Jerusalem.

The numbers are getting worse despite the efforts made by the teams to combat endemic diseases in the municipality, in the elimination of outbreaks and possible breeding sites of the dengue mosquito in the neighborhoods where they are most infested, in addition to the Clean Neighborhood Operation, which has already collected more than 200 tons waste in the Sonho Meu, Cândido Portinari and Belo Monte neighborhoods.

“We need the support of the population. Each resident must take care of their yard, carry out weekly inspections and eliminate materials that can accumulate water. Dengue is a challenge that can only be overcome with the effort of all, otherwise we will have to face again an epidemic of the disease that can have a tragic outcome”, warned the municipal secretary of Health, Herison Cleik da Silva Lima.
