    After confirmation of dengue type 2, Health intensifies actions
    Registry of more aggressive cases of the disease worries authorities; east zone will have a joint work next week

    The identification of cases of dengue type 2 in the eastern zone of Londrina motivated the city to intensify the actions to combat the mosquito Aedes aegypti. This type of virus increases the severity of the disease and the risk of death. An emergency action plan was launched this Thursday (31) by the municipal administration. Among the measures envisaged are the application of smoke and the carrying out of cleaning work.

    Circulation of type 2 virus was not registered in the city for about ten years. According to a bulletin released by Sesa (State Department of Health), 28 cases of dengue have been registered in Londrina since the beginning of the epidemiological year in August 2018. Until this Wednesday (30), there were 21 confirmations. Throughout the year 2018, the municipality counted 40 cases of the disease.

    Health Secretary Felippe Machado pointed out that the main concern is the focus of the dengue virus type 2. "Serotype 2 is the most aggressive and circulates in more advanced states of epidemic. There is a risk of people contracting in a short the two types of dengue. As it happens, it worsens in the second infection, "he explained.

    With the presence of type 2, which can cause more deaths, the city is using emergency actions. "There is a dengue-fighting plan to try to minimize the impact of a possible epidemic in the city. Action in the eastern zone, where type 2 has been found, will be reinforced with more than 100 endemic agents starting Monday. ), when almost 25,000 real estate will be searched. "

    Machado said that other secretariats will be asked to support possible efforts to collect garbage. In addition, the county asked the state government ten cars for the application of smoke. "We are getting ready so that if this number of notifications leads to an increase in positive cases, we will be prepared for this confrontation," he said. For now, the only city in an epidemic situation in Paraná is Uraí (North).

    "The LIRAa (Rapid Survey of Aedes aegypti Indexes) showed that 80% of the breeding sites are in houses and in garbage discarded irregularly," recalled Machado. The secretary calls for the support of the population to survey the residences and remove mosquitoes. "It's no use going to the people's house and picking up the breeding grounds if it comes back every ten days," he said. This is because, in times of heat and humidity, the eggs of the mosquito may hatch in five days, according to the director of health surveillance of the Municipal Health Department, Sônia Fernandes.

    Fernandes recalled that it is important that the population leave the house open during the passage of the smoke so that the insecticide can reach the mosquito. Although the chemical kills Aedes aegypti, it also strikes other insects, such as dragonflies, which are natural predators of mosquitoes. Asked about the increase in cases even with the application of dengue vaccines, Fernandes said that even with the three doses taken, the vaccine has effectiveness of 65%.

    Health guidance, according to the director, is that cleaning is frequent in pots of plants and animal feed containers. The coping plan now focuses on the east. According to Fernandes, in the southern zone, where most dengue notifications were made, "we have already done the work we could do." "We are preparing for the health units to be able to receive patients, acquiring more sera," said Machado.

                  Of the 645 municipalities in São Paulo, 603 have reported cases of dengue this year. In the capital, the confirmed cases in the first two months of this year are already 665, surpassing the total confirmed cases in every year of 2018, which was 560.

                  The large number of cases and the highest lethality this year, according to the Coordinator of Disease Control of the Secretariat, Marcos Boulos, are due to the circulation of a new type of virus, mainly in the north and northwest regions of the State.

                  "In previous years, only the serotype 1 was circulating in the State, which was the main agent of the great epidemic of 2015 and 2016, when almost 1 million people were infected.In 2017 and 2018, we had fewer cases because people who had had dengue were immune to the same virus, "explained the coordinator. "The problem is that serotype 2 appeared, and when reinfection occurs with a different virus, the person is not immune and there is potential for greater severity."

                  The fear is that, this year, the serotype 2 virus will spread throughout the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo. "Next summer, we will be under the influence of the El Niño phenomenon, making conditions more conducive to the transmitting mosquito, as happened in the epidemics of 2015 and 2011. Type 2 is spreading and the risk is that it reaches the regions The current outbreak is expected to decline in the early fall, but there is a risk of a very strong return in November and December, so we need to keep fighting the mosquito. "

                  The interior is already experiencing a new dengue epidemic. The cities with the most confirmed cases are Bauru (6,008), Araraquara (3,824), São José do Rio Preto (3,239), Andradina (2,401), Barretos (1,900), Fernandópolis (1,260) and São Joaquim da Barra (1,251). According to the Secretary of Health of São Joaquim, Rangel Luís de Melo, when the bulletins are released, the numbers are already outdated due to the occurrence of new cases.

                  Smaller cities also have high infection rates, according to the State Department bulletin. Palestine, with 11 thousand inhabitants, has 636 confirmed cases, while Ituverava, with 41 thousand inhabitants, already adds 618 and Pereira Barreto (25 thousand inhabitants) has 510 confirmed patients.

                  The cities with the most confirmed deaths are Bauru (10), São José do Rio Preto (4), São Joaquim da Barra (4), Araraquara (4) and Andradina (2). In Bauru, nine other deaths are under investigation. Three suspicious deaths are investigated in Birigui.

                  The prefectures have set up dedicated care facilities for patients with dengue fever and are using insecticides on the streets against the transmitting mosquito. In Guararapes, with 214 cases, the municipality denounced to the State Public Ministry 12 property owners who did not allow the entry of anti-dengue agents. Another 293 refusals are being cleared.

                      Six days after confirming that Campinas (SP) is facing a new dengue epidemic, the city said on Monday (1) that the number of confirmed cases reached 799 and determined that the 65 health centers in the city prioritize the reception of patients with symptoms of the disease.

                      The most affected region of the city is the Northwest, with 370 confirmations. The number of patients with dengue increased 43% in six days: from 556 to 799. All cases are of serotype 2.

                      Main symptoms

                      High and sudden fever
                      Body pain
                      Red spots
                      Vomiting or diarrhea

                      According to the city hall, two reference units were established in the network: the São Bernardo Health Center, near the Dr. Mário Gatti Municipal Hospital, and the Campo Grande Emergency Care Unit (UPA), in the region most affected by dengue.

                      "The two services will each have an exclusive team to attend cases of the disease, with nursing, medical, collection of examination and hydration room. The first one (São Bernardo) is already in operation and the second is in the organizing phase," says the note.

                      Despite confirming the opening of hydration rooms in the two posts, the health secretary, Carmino de Souza, had promised last week to open three rooms for patients infected with the virus - the third service station has not yet been disclosed.

                      Among the groups that are most concerned are the elderly (mainly comorbidities) and children (because they do not have adequate immunity).

                      Type 2

                      During the announcement that the city faces a new dengue epidemic, the director of the Department of Health Surveillance (Devisa), Andrea Von Zuben, explained that there are no differences between dengue serotypes - 1 to 4 - regarding treatment, care and symptoms.

                      For the department, however, care is needed because the serotype 2 has not circulated expressively in the city since 2009 and, with that, the entire population is susceptible. Therefore, those who fell ill because of another serotype in previous years may be infected again, including the chance of having a more serious illness.


                      The City of Campinas announced measures and care for the population to prevent the proliferation of the mosquito Aedes aegypti, transmitter of the dengue virus:

                      Avoid accumulation of water in cans, tires and other objects;
                      Flower pots must have water changed every two days;
                      Water tanks and other containers used to store the liquid must be sealed;
                      Unused toilet flasks should remain closed.

                          04/04/2019 - 04h00 (Updated 12/04/2019 - 03:21 PM)

                          The State of São Paulo has circulation of type 2 dengue, the most serious, in more than 57 cities, according to the director of the CVE (State Epidemiological Surveillance Center), Regiane de Paula. The dengue virus has 4 types.

                          According to the State Department of Health, the State registered more than 49 thousand confirmed cases and 39 deaths until the last bulletin, of 25 of March.

                          "There is high Aedes Aegypti infestation in these regions," he says. "It is worth mentioning that 80% of the breeding sites are inside the houses," he adds.

                          Ten cities account for 54% of the confirmed cases, which is equivalent to 27 thousand occurrences. São José do Rio Preto, Andradina, Barretos, São Joaquim da Barra, Fernandópolis, São Paulo, Agudos and Ipuã.

                          The Bauru leader counts 10,207 cases and 12 confirmed deaths, according to the Bauru Municipal Health Secretariat.

                          Climate inside is "nice" to the mosquito

                          "The interior of São Paulo is a climatically pleasant region for the mosquito, with heat and humidity. In addition, there is a predominance of serotype 2, which has not circulated in large proportions for some time. says the doctor and doctor in microbiology Maurício Nogueira, president of the Brazilian Society of Virology (SBV).

                          The last dengue epidemic occurred in 2015. According to Regiane, every three or four years there is an increase in the number of cases. "What worsened this year was the type 2 circulation. In the previous years, there was the predominant circulation of type 1. This reduced the number of people susceptible to this virus. However, in relation to type 2 , people are unprotected, "he points out.

                          The doctor explains that there is a greater frequency of severe cases the second time the disease is contracted. "This is due to a complex immune phenomenon in which the antibodies from the first infection, instead of protecting it from the second, end up facilitating the multiplication of the virus."

                          According to him, most people are having the second dengue infection, for that reason, the highest incidence of severe cases. "Theoretically, a person can get dengue fever four times, since there are four serotypes of the virus, but the third and fourth infections are usually asymptomatic," he says.

                          Only big cold front should stop epidemic

                          Nogueira points out that the epidemic continues to grow. "We are experiencing its peak," he says. He points out that controlling the problem depends on weather conditions. "The epidemic that affects the interior of São Paulo lasts, and this is historic, until the first great cold front, which usually happens at the end of May."

                          After it passes, the president of the Brazilian Society of Virology stresses that it will generate immunity in the population. "We will live in this cycle until one of the things is achieved: control the mosquito, which is already known that it is not possible, or create a vaccine that is really effective," he concludes.

                          Regiane points out that while it is not possible to eliminate the mosquito, some practices can help control its proliferation such as washing the water box every six months with soap and water and keeping it capped, checking gutters and refrigerator trays. "It's important to take 15 minutes a week to look at possible breeding grounds in the house," he says.

                              The City of Belo Horizonte inaugurates, on Monday (22), a special unit to receive patients suspected of dengue that need to receive serum for hydration.

                              The Voluntary Replacement Unit will operate from 7:00 pm at the UPA (Central Emergency Response Unit), located at Rua Domingos Vieira, 488, in the neighborhood of Santa Efigênia. It will have 25 beds, operate 24 hours and receive patients who are routed from other units.

                              On Saturday (20), the city hall opened four health centers in the Northeast, Pampulha, Barreiro and Venda Nova areas during the morning and afternoon, for exclusive care for patients with dengue symptoms. According to the municipal health department, the choice of places was based on the number of cases in regions with the highest incidence of disease.

                              The city council reports that since April 11, 70 professionals have been hired, 37 of them doctors, and there are still 68 openings for doctors and 87 for other categories that work in the health area.


                              According to the epidemiological bulletin of dengue, published by the State Department of Health, Belo Horizonte already has 11,454 probable cases of dengue, which represents the incidence of one case for every 457 inhabitants.

                              The total number of occurrences in the mining capital is about 10% of that registered in the entire state of Minas Gerais. So far, the Secretariat has already recorded 121 thousand cases in the 853 municipalities of Minas Gerais, and 14
