Araraquara has intensified work in the fight against dengue by agents for controlling endemic diseases, from epidemiological surveillance, in several areas of the city. This Tuesday (29), in addition to house-to-house blocks and fogging and fogging, drone traffic began in the central area of the city.
Agents carried out sieges in Jardim Brasil, Centro, São Giraldo and Residencial Acalantro; Carry out inspections at recycling points, scrap metal and tire shops in Jardim Zavanilla, Jardim Sera Azul, Distrito Industrial, Villa Cidenho, Salma Dey and Valle Verde, as well as coastal fogging in Jardim Independence and automated fogging (smoke) in Villa Xavier.
The work of the drone was coordinated by the Municipal Health Department, by the Health Surveillance and Vector Control Department, in cooperation with the Municipal Department of Public Security Cooperation.
The equipment circled over a part of the city center, between Parque Infantil and Avenida Maria Antônia Camargo de Oliveira, Via Expressa, looking for places on the properties where it was not possible to enter or places where it was difficult to reach. After the overflight, ground inspection was carried out at critical points by endemic agents and dengue inspectors.
On Wednesday (30), according to the Vector Control Department, ban teams will pass against the breeding sites through the neighborhoods of Jardim Brasil, São Giraldo, Jardim das Flores and Jardim Universal.
Nebulization work will be transferred to Santa Angelina. Smoking will take place at Vila Xavier, in two shifts: in the morning, between Avenida Padre Antônio Cezarino, Avenida das Indústrias, Rua Marechal Deodoro da Fonseca and 13 de Maio. At night, it will trade between Avenidas Antonio Lourenço Correia, Avenida Sinista Frederico de Marco, Rua Marechal Deodoro da Fonseca and Alameda Paulista.
Services that have been ramped up by the municipality of Araraquara due to the growth in the number of cases in the city, consist of breeding sites for the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which transmits dengue and other diseases such as Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever, in addition to prevention guidelines.
The Municipal Health Service once again called for the attention of the population to everyone to participate in this fight against mosquitoes that transmit dengue, because 80% of dengue breeding sites are located in inhabited homes. On average, 30 thousand homes are visited per month and in half of them the work has not been completed due to the lack of permission to enter.
The teams even work long hours (at night) and on Saturday shifts, in an effort to reduce this problem.
It should be noted that the irregular disposal of garbage, solid waste and sofas (sofas, armchairs and mattresses), as well as fires in urban and rural areas, can be reported to the official authorities by calling 0800770 1595.
The latest balance updated by Surveillance indicates that Araraquara reached the mark of 1,721 confirmed cases of dengue in 2022. There were 138 cases in January, 636 in February and 947 in March. Six deaths from dengue have been recorded in Araraquara this year 2022.
Symptoms of dengue fever include fever, body aches, headache, pain behind the eyes, and spots on the body. In these cases, it is important to seek medical attention and take personal documents, the SUS card, and proof of address using the zip code.
The Dengue Care Center at the field hospital operates daily, including weekends and holidays, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. All health units in the municipality also serve suspected cases of dengue fever, centers are open from Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm and UPAS is 24 hours.
