        Campinas registers 7,900 cases of dengue fever

        Campinas (SP) reported Monday that the number of patients infected with dengue fever reached 7,971, up 45% from the previous week, when the Department of Health Surveillance (Devisa) had 5,493 confirmed cases. In addition, the municipality registered the first monkey with yellow fever since 2017. At the time, nine primates tested positive for the disease.

        The balance shows that the Northwest region, where the Campo Grande district is located, is the most affected in Campinas, with 2,463 positive cases. The southern region comes in sequence, with 2,061 infected. The number of cases under investigation is 1,252.

        Director of Devisa, Andrea Von Zuben argues that the municipality has registered a decrease in new cases in recent weeks. "We started to reduce the number, but the cases are increasing because we are confirming suspects," he explained.

        According to Andrea, the number of infected this year is "higher than expected" and that the city does not speak more in projection. A week ago, the director said she estimated that the city could reach up to 10,000 cases, given the speed of virus transmission in the city.


        An anti-dengue campaign carried out in Campinas (SP) this Monday (29) removed about 210 tons of garbage and debris that were in a public area in Jardim Fernanda, which serves as a route for aircraft arriving and departing from the airport of Viracopos. Organic garbage, above all, attracts vultures and the presence of animals can create risk of accidents during flights in the region.

        Items such as toilet bowls, tires, which can be used as a breeding ground for the Aedes aegypti mosquito, were removed from the ground during work supported by a tractor. "The population needs to collaborate with the situation, stop bringing garbage here, ecoponto is very close to here, regular collection," said public services advisor Paulo Ribeiro Filho.

        The cleaning action continues until the sixth (3) and includes the neighborhoods Campo Belo 1 and 2, Singer City 1 and 2, Jardim Itaguaçu 1 and 2, Jardim Marisa, São Domingos, Vila Palmeiras and Dom Gilberto, among others. Papers will be interrupted only during the May 1 holiday.

        According to the administration, 170 people, including public servants and reeducers, will work on the removal of rubbish in neighborhoods, with cleaning of streams, services of capping and clearing of wolf's mouth. The idea is to eliminate possible breeding sites of the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

        Yellow fever

        The epidemiological bulletin of Devisa released on Monday also confirmed the first positive case of yellow fever in primates since 2017, when nine monkeys were infected. The animal was found dead on March 20, near a forest belonging to the Guarani and the tests confirmed the presence of the disease.

        In the statement, the Health Department highlights that it carries out actions in the region, with the research to analyze the presence of wild mosquitoes, vectors of the disease, and educational actions with residents, guiding vaccination.

        According to the City Hall, since the year 2000, 1.2 million doses of the vaccine against yellow fever have been applied, and the dose is available in all health centers in the municipality.

        There are no records of human cases in Campinas this year. The city had an autochthonous case (contracted in the municipality) in 2017, and another imported in 2018.

                BRASÍLIA E SOROCABA - Police investigator Juliana Gonçalves, 41, spent two days in bed because of dengue fever last month. "The pain has passed, but I still have red spots on my body. It was horrible. "Beyond her, three co-workers were infected. "I'm sure mosquitoes come from a river next to the police station," says Juliana, of Caraguatatuba, north coast of São Paulo. Even two months after the end of the summer, the disease in the country still worries: from the beginning of the year until the last day 11, total registrations were 432% higher, compared to the same period of 2018.

                The jump was 144,000 probable cases of infection to 767 thousand reported suspicions. Deaths from the virus also dropped from 88 to 222 - most of them (80) in São Paulo. The number of infected people has exploded in 20 states and the Federal District.

                There are four serotypes of the virus. The epidemic and the increased incidence in these states are explained by the spread of type 2, says Rodrigo Said, the general coordinator of the National Programs for Control and Prevention of Malaria and Diseases Transmitted by the Aedes Ministry of Health. "The latest epidemics were for viruses 1 or 4," he says. "This serotype (2), which circulated little and therefore had little immunological protection, has now returned and made the population more susceptible."

                The climate, according to Said, also plays an important role. Heavy rains in recent weeks have caused larvae of the transmitting mosquito, Aedes aegypti, to hatch. In addition, higher temperatures create favorable conditions for the insect.

                "As long as it does not cool down, the cases will continue," says Regiane de Paula, of the Epidemiological Surveillance Center of the São Paulo Health Secretariat. The El Niño weather phenomenon, she said, is making the cold take longer to enter this year in the Southeast.

                Until the last day, only four of the 645 cities of São Paulo did not notify cases. More serious is the picture of Bauru, with 19.7 thousand infected and 21 deaths.

                In Tupã, where the outbreak led to the mayor's cassation (read below), the autonomous Valdecir Freitas, his wife and 13-year-old son were infected. "I keep everything clean, but it has empty lots of trash. We pay for the carelessness of others, "he complains.

                With the expectation of late and short winter, there is a growing need to maintain actions against Aedes breeding sites. According to the ministry, more than 80% of mosquitoes come from residential areas. Other cities maintained in the fall the use of insecticide (smoke). The strategy, to kill the adult Aedes, is considered less effective than eliminating standing water, which avoids the birth of the transmitter.

                The ministry says it has 300,000 liters of insecticide expired and that, according to preliminary information received this week, are not suitable for use. According to Said, the samples of this product were sent to an accredited laboratory, but the responses received this week were not favorable to the use of the product.

                As soon as the first symptoms appeared, former senator Marina Silva (Network) sought a hospital in Brasilia. The severe pain in the body and in the head helped to anticipate the diagnosis confirmed later by examination: dengue. In the country's capital, where the incidents increased by more than 1,200%, the government spread six temporary posts in areas of higher incidence. There, tests are applied and there is assistance provided by doctors, nurses and technicians.

                Infected for the second time with dengue, Marina was hospitalized for three days last week. On Twitter, he recalled being "one of thousands." According to the former senator's press office, she is well.

                The new infection, as occurred with Marina, carries even greater risk. "The successive disposition to the virus and a second infection can cause more serious manifestations and even death," warns the ministry's Said.

                The Medical Department of the Chamber of Deputies attended 88 patients with suspected dengue between April 1 and May 29 of this year. Under the allegation of medical secrecy, the department does not distinguish how many are servants or parliamentarians, nor does it disclose patient names. Because of the high incidence of cases in the federal capital, the local government has adopted as a strategy to spread six temporary posts in areas of higher incidence. Assistance is provided by doctors, nurses and nursing technicians.
                Epidemic was reason to dismiss mayor

                The outbreak of dengue this year cost up to the position of the mayor of Tupã (SP), José Ricardo Raymundo (PV). He was dismissed by the City Council last week, accused of omission in combat

                  But, according to ministry estimates, the incidence of Aedes aegypti-related illnesses is expected to begin to decline this year, especially with the onset of winter.

                  Zika and chikungunya

                  The epidemiological bulletin of the Ministry of Health also counts cases of chikungunya and zika in Brazil. Along with dengue, the two diseases are the most prevalent arborivores in the country.

                  The chikungunya had 15 deaths registered in 2019: 1 in Bahia, 13 in Rio de Janeiro and 1 in the Federal District. There are still 42 deaths under investigation in the state of Pernambuco. In all, there are more than 53 thousand probable cases of the disease in the whole country, number four thousand less than the 57 thousand recorded in the same period of 2018. Rio de Janeiro is the state with the highest number of cases: almost 36 thousand.

                  Zika has not had confirmed deaths until the end of May, but adds up to 6,100 probable cases in the country.

                  In the world, 6.1 billion people are at risk of contracting dengue by 2080, according to a study published in Nature Microbiology on June 10. the main factors that explain the phenomenon are global warming and population growth in endemic areas.

                  The mosquito transmitter: The Aedes aegypti mosquito has shortened reproductive period and throws more eggs in the summer when it is hot. At this time of year it is also when it bites people more, transmitting the arboviruses dengue, zika and chikungunya. Global warming is altering the mosquito cycle because periods of high temperatures are longer.

                  States are without insecticide against mosquito Aedes Aegypti

                  The fight against the mosquito Aedes aegypti adult, responsible for transmitting dengue, zika and chikungunya may be impaired in the coming days in the country because, according to the Ministry of Health, some states of the federation are without the insecticide used against the vector.

                  The most serious case of lack of insecticity is in Rio de Janeiro. In a note, the MS said that the Secretariat of Health Surveillance is working to minimize the problems caused by the lack of the product. Also according to the note, due to the shortage, there was the attempt to loan the insecticide with other countries in South America, but there was no product available.

                  The normalization of the stock in the states depends on the passthrough of the insecticides by the MS, who buys the products through international bidding.
                  According to the Superintendent of Epidemiological Surveillance of the State Department of Health (SES) of Rio, Mário Sérgio Ribeiro, "the expectation is that the numbers of dengue cases decrease with the arrival of winter so that we do not have to rely on insecticides."

                  Ribeiro presented the updated data of arboviruses in Rio. Between January and June 4 of this year, there were 41,888 cases of chikungunya, 20,622 cases of dengue fever and 1,005 people infected by zika. In all, 13 people died by chikungunya, being 10 in the state capital.

                  The president of Alerj's Health Commission, MP Martha Rocha (PDT), said she was worried about the situation. "We have an alarming diagnosis. There have already been 13 deaths by chikungunya this year, with experts still claiming that the disease is not fully known. There are also constant failures in diagnosis and now the news of insecticide shortages. I see very difficult days in the state health sector, "he said.

                  According to MS data, Rio de Janeiro received 17,800 liters of insecticide to combat Aedes aegypti throughout 2018 and 4,800 liters by April 30 of this year.

                    In one week, Minas Gerais registered an increase of 22,310 new probable cases of dengue. According to a bulletin released on Tuesday, from January to Monday (17), the State Department of Health (SES) has already been notified of 421,832 cases of the disease - 399,522 notifications last week. The numbers refer to the confirmed cases and the suspicions, not necessarily occurred this week, since the municipalities have a longer deadline to inform the folder of the occurrences.

                    The report released by the bureau also indicates that the number of registered cases of this month is already the second largest for June, taking into account the data since 2010. This month, 8,817 probable cases have already been registered, representing an average of approximately 518 notifications per day.

                    If the daily average continues until the 30th, June 2019 will exceed the data of the month in 2015, when 14,083 cases were registered; about 469 notifications per day.

                    Despite the high numbers, dengue shows signs of weakening in Minas Gerais. In May, for example, the Health Department registered 124,401 cases of the disease and in April the number of notifications exceeded 150,000 - those two months are among the worst of the diseases in the last 10 years.

                    Even so, this year's epidemic is already one of the worst in history. 2019 only loses to 2016, when, from January to December, 519,050 cases were registered.

                    This year, there are already 77 deaths and 139 are under investigation to confirm if they were related to dengue. The highest number of deaths was registered in Belo Horizonte and Betim, in Grande BH. Both cities have 12 confirmed cases.

                    They also recorded deaths: Arcos (1), Count (2), Curvelo (1), Frutal (2), Ibirité (1), Ituiutaba (1), João Monlevade (1), João Pinheiro 7), Lagoa da Prata (1), Martinho Campos (1), Monte Carmelo (1), Paracatu (1), Passos (2), Patos de Minas (1), Pitangui (1), Pompéu Paranaíba (1), Sacramento (1), São Gonçalo do Pará (1), São Gotardo (1), Uberaba (2), Uberlândia (14), Unaí (2) and Vazante (2).

                    Zika and chikungunya
                    In relation to the chikungunya fever, Minas Gerais has already registered 2,435 probable cases of the disease in 2019. To date, a death in investigation for chikungunya has been reported.

                    In relation to zika, 1,193 probable cases of the disease were registered in 2019, until the update date of the bulletin.

                          Falls the number of dengue cases in DF

                          Currently, the DF has seven task force tents for hydration of patients with suspected dengue. Before, there were ten, but three were turned off

                          According to the Health Department, there has been a decrease of approximately 50% in the number of suspected and confirmed cases of dengue in the last two weeks. The fall is a comparison with the 25th Epidemiological Week, June 16-22. In this period, 35,523 cases of dengue were recorded, with the equivalent of 96.6% occurring in residents of the Federal District (DF).

                          In that period, 31 deaths (two more than the previous week), 47 severe cases that survived and 619 dengue cases with alarm signs were recorded. The North Health Region had the highest number, with 10 deaths (32.3%).

                          The Subsecretariat for Health Surveillance will intensify home visits, prepare courses on insects (entomology), new partnerships will be made to set up an entomovirology laboratory (responsible for checking the viruses that circulate among mosquitoes) and intend to expand the coverage of traps.

                          "We need to count on the participation of all the population in the control of the vector, which causes not only dengue, but also zika and chikungunya," said Deputy Secretary of Health Surveillance Divino Valero. He recalled that during the process of fighting the mosquito that transmitted the disease, the Health Department mobilized more than 3,000 people. Valero said: "We inspected about 900,000 buildings, used 40 smoke machines against the adult mosquito, mobilized more than 480 people only from the Environmental Watch Division."

                          Currently, the DF has seven task force tents for hydration of patients with suspected dengue. Before, there were ten, but three were disabled, in Varjão, Estrutural and São Sebastião. The others will run until June 30 in Guará, Itapoã, Planaltina, Sobradinho II, Samambaia, Ceilândia and Brazlândia.

                          In the period from May 25 to June 26, the hydration tents spread throughout the DF attended 34,017 people. Of this total, 23,303 were suspected of dengue, 7,221 received hydration or medication and 651 had to be taken to hospitals. The service has been declining, as shown in the chart below.

                          "The tents have fulfilled their main role, which was to receive and treat the simplest cases of suspected dengue," confirmed the Undersecretary of Comprehensive Health Care, Ricardo Ramos. According to him, there was a significant reduction in demand for service, justifying the deactivation of all structures after June 30. After that date, those who need it should look for the public health units.

                          For those still seeking shelter in the tents, the assistance is provided by nursing technicians, nurses and, when necessary, are referred for medical evaluation, which is sovereign to the rapid tests. Patients with classic symptoms of dengue are welcomed, are tested for disease confirmation (if necessary), receive oral hydration and treatment for symptoms.

                          Due to the attendance in the tents, the emergencies of the hospitals presented reduction in the demand. In the Regional Hospital of Guará, the occupancy rate in the Medical Clinic has reduced by 34.25% since the tent was installed near the Basic Health Unit (UBS) 1 of Guará. In Hran, after placing the tent in Varjão, there was a reduction of 12%. The Hospital do Guará estimated improvement in 38%, and the Hospital of Paranoá, in 40%.

                          The commander-in-chief of the DF's Military Fire Department, Colonel Emilson Ferreira, reported that the corporation has been active against dengue for three years. "We put more than 2,000 soldiers acting exclusively in the tents, visited more than 72,000 houses and treated more than 40,000 properties," he said.
                          Task force

                          The Secretariat of Health received the support of a task force in the fight against the mosquito Aedes aegypti. The Civil Police, Fire Brigade, Military Police, Civil Police, Navy, Aeronautics, Army, SLU and Civil Defense contributed to this reinforcement.

                          Currently, the Health Department has the work of inspecting approximately 470 agents in the field, among employees of Vigilância Ambiental, SLU and assigned professionals. Each agent inspects an average of 20 homes per day.

                          The continuation of the task of combating arboviruses continues to be carried out by health, also with the collaboration of the Civil Defense, through the telephone number 199, to receive complaints about spaces with accumulation of garbage and water.

                            The number of confirmed cases of dengue in Jundiaí is falling. According to the new balance sheet published yesterday by the Jundiaí Epidemiological Surveillance, 2,779 cases of the disease have been confirmed in the city since the beginning of the year, of which 2,568 were indigenous, 169 imported and 6 undetermined. According to the bulletin, in the last week 36 new cases have been confirmed.

                            The neighborhood of São Camilo continues to be the neighborhood with the highest incidence, with 573 cases, followed by Jardim Novo Horizonte with 386. The other districts with a high incidence of confirmed autochthonous dengue cases are Vila Hortolândia with 154, Vila Nambi (152), Ponte São João (134), Vila Aparecida (88), Jardim Tarumã (77), Almerinda Chaves (68), Vila Rio Branco (66), Vila Rami (63), Jardim Sorocabana (58), Residencial Jundiaí (50), Jardim do Lago (49), Agapeama (48) and Jardim Tamoio (40).

                            According to the bulletin, 5,849 cases have been notified and 57 are awaiting results for confirmation.

                            In relation to Chikungunya there were eight cases reported and none confirmed, two of which were awaiting confirmation. As much of Zica as of Yellow Fever, no case was registered.

                            Health workers advise residents to take care of standing water in containers such as dishes, bottles, tires, gutter, slab and water tank to prevent the presence of the larva of the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

                              Brazil reports sharp rise in dengue fever cases
                              Extreme weather patterns fuel 600% jump in cases of potentially deadly disease
                              Bryan Harris in São Paulo 14 hours ago

                              Authorities in Brazil have reported an explosion in the number of cases of dengue fever as increasingly extreme weather patterns fuel the spread of the potentially lethal, mosquito-borne disease.

                              In the first six months of 2019, Latin America’s largest nation recorded almost 1.2m dengue cases — a jump of almost 600 per cent from the 175,000 cases in the same period last year. The number of deaths rose 220 per cent to 388.

                              The development is likely to exacerbate concerns about the public health impact of global warming at a time when many world leaders, including Jair Bolsonaro, Brazilian president, are showing little appetite to protect the environment.

                              The surge is particularly concerning for scientists given it has extended into the winter season, when the disease should decline.

                              “This year is very different because we have had dengue fever circulating for much longer — and the cause of this is global warming,” said Ester Sabino, a professor at the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of São Paulo.

                              “We have had more days with high temperatures, so mosquitoes continue to multiply.”

                              In recent years, Brazil has suffered a string of outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases, including yellow fever in the São Paulo region last year as well as the Zika virus, which spread rapidly through the north-east in 2015...

                                More than 12 deaths from dengue have been confirmed in Minas Gerais in just one week, according to the latest bulletin of the disease released by the State Department of Health. With this, the number of confirmed deaths from the disease has risen from 86 to 98, from June 25 to this Tuesday (2).

                                In addition, the number of probable cases of the disease (sum of confirmed and suspected cases) gained 4,268 new occurrences, jumping from 423,317 to 427,585 cases in the same period.

                                The municipality of Uberlândia, in the Triângulo Mineiro, leads the cases of dengue deaths, with 16 deaths, followed by Belo Horizonte, which already counts 15 deaths caused by the disease - three more than in the last balance -, and Betim, with 13.

                                The cities of Araguari, Arcos, Campos Gerais, Contagem, Curvelo, Estrela do Sul, Frutal, Guarani, Ibiá, Ituiutaba, Jaboticatubas, João Monlevade, João Pinheiro, Juiz de Fora, Lagoa da Prata and Martinho Campos , Monte Carmelo, Paracatu, Passos, Patos de Minas, Patrocínio, Pitangui, Pompéu, Rio Paranaíba, Sacramento, São Gonçalo do Pará, São Gotardo, Sete Lagoas, Uberaba, Unaí and Vazante.

                                But the death toll in the state may be even higher, as 137 more deaths are still under investigation for dengue fever. This is the second largest dengue epidemic ever recorded in the state. According to SES, only in 2016 were there more people infected: 519 thousand.

                                Chikungunya and zika

                                As for the other diseases transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the survey also shows that Minas has already registered 2,577 probable cases of chikungunya fever this year, which means the confirmation of 67 new cases between the last report released on June 25 and the survey released on Tuesday (2). So far, a death is being investigated for the disease.

                                As for zika, 167 suspected cases were discarded for the disease, and between one survey and the other, the number of probable records dropped from 1,231 to 1,064 suspected cases. No deaths were caused by the disease in Minas Gerais this year.
