    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.”

    Cai o número de casos de dengue no DF

    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."
    Tents

    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.
    Reduction

    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.
