The Municipal Health Department, through Endemic Disease Control, presented the bulletin from August 14 to 20 – referring to the new epidemiological period (which runs from August 2022 to July 2023). The data show that the municipality has 52 notifications; 51 negative cases and one confirmation for the disease. Closed at the end of July, in the previous period, Arapongas received 8,624 notifications; 3,004 confirmed cases; 5,607 negative and five deaths. The coordinator of Endemic Disease Control, Valdecir Pardini, reinforces that even with no registered case, the population should not relax in the care to combat and prevent the Aedes aegypti mosquito. “Our work continues. Paraná registered a dengue epidemic. Therefore, with the beginning of this new cycle, care must be maintained and even reinforced. We ask for the collaboration of the entire population in the elimination of possible foci or breeding sites of the Aedes aegypti mosquito”, he mentioned.
Important practices must be taken into account to prevent the proliferation of the mosquito that causes dengue, zika and chikungunya. With daily care, the population can contribute a lot to the fight.
