New epidemiological period: Arapongas records 52 notifications and one confirmed case of dengue

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.

CARE

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.

See what to do:

DO NOT LET
STANDING WATER

Destroy the places where the mosquito is born and develops. Avoid their breeding.

DUMPERS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE HOUSE

Keep trash cans covered and protected from rain. Close the plastic bag tightly.

PANS FOR ANIMALS

Pots with water for animals should be washed very well with soap and water at least twice a week.

MINERAL WATER BOTTLE SUPPORT

Always wash it when you make the switch. Keep sealed when not in use.

PLANT VASE DISHES

Keep them clean and sand to the brim.

REFRIGERATOR WATER COLLECTOR AND
AIR CONDITIONING

Behind the refrigerator there is a water collector. Wash it once a week, just like the air conditioner trays.

PLANTS THAT ACCUMULATE WATER

Avoid having bromeliads and other plants that accumulate water, or remove water from the leaves weekly.

TOILET

Keep the lid closed or seal with plastic. In lightly used bathrooms, flush at least once a week.

EMPTY PLANT PACKS AND BUCKETS

Store them in a covered place, upside down.

DRAINS

Cover the drains with screens or keep them sealed, especially those that are not in use.

BOTTLES

Bottles must be packaged and disposed of in the trash. If stored, they must be covered or upside down.

SLABS

Do not let water accumulate on the slabs. Always keep them dry.

POOLS

Keep the pool always clean, even when not in use. Use chlorine to treat the water and filter periodically.

GUTTERS

Clean and level. Always keep them free of leaves and materials that could impede the passage of water.

DECORATIVE WATER OBJECTS

Always keep them clean with chlorinated water or fill them with sand. Raise fish, as they feed on mosquito larvae.

WATER BOXES, TANKS AND WELLS

Keep them closed and sealed. Cover with fabric those that do not have their own cover.

SHREDS OF GLASS ON THE WALLS

Seal with cement or break up any shards that can collect water.

WATER TANKS AND DEPOSITS

Keep them sealed. Those that do not have a lid should be brushed once a week and covered with mesh.

FAILURES IN THE RUBBER

Fix and level any imperfections in floors and places that can accumulate water.

GARBAGE, RUBBLE AND OLD TIRES

Rubble and rubbish must be disposed of correctly. Store the tires in a covered place or drill holes so that water does not accumulate.

OBJECTS THAT ACCUMULATE WATER

Put it in a plastic bag, close it well and throw it in the trash: bottle caps, eggshells, disposable cups and others.

EASIER DISEASE CONTROL

Always allow access to the zoonosis control agent in your residence or commercial establishment.
