Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya are three diseases transmitted by Aedes Aegypti. From the Ministry of Public Health, they reiterated the importance of removing the possibility of a reservoir for mosquitoes.
In this case, the Minister of Health, Jorge Basso, explained:
"We are in full harvest. There is a combination of heat and rain. Everything shows that we will have a higher mosquito density this summer. It is not a mosquito that is far from where we live.
This is a mosquito that we won't find in a large water mirror, a garden: we will find it in our homes, need to bite people to breed.
It's around the address. The recommendation is to avoid producing outer containers that accumulate rainwater, because it creates the conditions for it to reproduce. "
