The Provincial Ministry of Public Health, through the Directorate General of Epidemiology, conducted operations to combat dengue fever in San Luis del Palmar and Bella Vista, eliminating several breeding sites for Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.
At San Luis del Palmar, the works were carried out after a storm that freed the weekend. In this case, the general director of Epidemiology, Gustavo Fernandez, said that "the promotion team plus vector brigades toured evacuation centers, sent repellents, leaflets, alcohol in gels and checked that the sectors were free of insects. In some cases, "insecticides are used in aerosols in the interior and fumigation in open spaces," he added.
Finally, Public Health was also in the 15th Closest Variety Fishing Competition held at Bella Vista. "A vector stand was installed at a party that took place in the city, where evictions and information brochures about preventing vector diseases were given to people who approached the fishing tournament," Fernandez said. In his assignment, Fernández accompanied the deputy director of Zoonosis and Vector Control from the Directorate General of Regional Epidemiology and Pathology, Luis Insaurralde.
