According to the weekly dengue bulletin issued by Sesa, 61 new cases were recorded in Paraná, with a total of 613 infected people. The data is from the new seasonal period of the disease, which began on August 1, 2021 and should continue until July 2022.
So far, 298 municipalities have registered dengue notifications, of which 109 have confirmed the disease, with 79 municipalities having authentic cases, that is, dengue has been contracted in the residence municipality.
According to the information in the leaflet, Denv1 and Denv2 serotypes are prevalent in Paraná, maintaining the same trend observed in the previous epidemiological period.
The report also emphasizes that there is a high climatic risk for the spread of the vector that transmits dengue, Zika and chikungunya in coastal and northwestern regions, so it is important that the population pays attention to eliminating mosquito outbreaks.
