  • Argentina: Trichinosis cases rise to 23 in Rufino, Santa Fe

    July 25, 2022

    by NEWS DESK

    The number of trichinosis cases reported in the city of Rufino, in Santa Fe province has risen to 23 as officials reported an additional 15 cases.

    It is recommended to take extreme care regarding the origin of the meat to be consumed and its cooking, since the main cause for infection is insufficient cooking in the case of meat and sausages, plus the risk of sausages than in the production process that does not include such cooking.

    Trichinosis is a parasitic disease caused most commonly by the roundworm Trichinella spiralis. If someone ingests undercooked or raw meat with the encysted larvae, the stomach acid releases the larvae which mature to adults in the intestine.

    ... Sudden appearance of fever, muscle soreness and pain with swelling of parts of the face is early classic signs. This can sometimes be followed by retinal hemorrhages and other ocular signs.
