West Panama health region reports more than 520 cases of dengue

A total of 527 cases of dengue have been registered in Western Panama, as revealed by the most recent report from the Department of Epidemiology of the Health Region of this province.

The report reveals that Arraiján is the district with the most cases with 432 confirmed cases; it is followed by La Chorrera, with 84 cases; Capira with 7 cases; Chame with 2 cases and San Carlos, with two more cases.

Given these figures, the Department of Health Promotion gave guidance to the students of the Nuevo Chorrillo school in the district of Arraiján, on dengue and mosquito breeding sites.

Minsa asks the population to become aware of the importance of keeping the surroundings clean and avoiding the breeding sites of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito that transmits Dengue Zica and Chikungunya.

The vector control team remains strong, carrying out interventions in the communities that have registered the most cases and house-to-house fumigation to avoid mosquito breeding sites.

It is recommended to prevent mosquitoes from finding places to lay their eggs, dispose of the garbage that is around their homes, empty the objects that can accumulate rainwater and place them upside down.

This work team carries out interventions daily, which is why it calls on the entire population of the West Panama province for their cooperation in allowing vector control personnel and community promoters, duly identified with their cards, to enter their homes to fumigate, inspect and provide prevention education.
