    Pai de menino de 9 anos morto pela nova gripe critica Secretaria de Sa?de

    Caso foi a segunda morte no Rio Grande do Sul e a terceira no pa?s.
    Fam?lia diz que houve falhas no controle de quem estava contaminado.

    Do G1, em S?o Paulo, com informa??es do clicRBS*

    Traumatizado com a morte do filho mais novo, v?tima de pneumonia causada pela nova gripe, o morador de Sapucaia do Sul (RS) reclamou dos ?rg?os de sa?de e da escola de Novo Hamburgo, local que teria originado o cont?gio. O filho, um menino de 9 anos, ? a terceira v?tima da nova gripe no Brasil.

    De acordo com o secret?rio de Sa?de do munic?pio, Jos? Wink, ele morreu em 5 de julho, em Porto Alegre, mas o resultado da an?lise laboratorial que confirmou o cont?gio s? saiu nesta segunda-feira (13). Inicialmente, os m?dicos n?o haviam identificado o v?rus.

    O pai do garoto, que prefere n?o se identificar para evitar preconceitos ? sua fam?lia, disse que o col?gio teria isolado um professor que tinha voltado da Argentina com suspeita da gripe, mas considera que houve falha ao permitir que a mulher dele, professora, continuasse a dar aulas.

    "Disseram que ela fez os exames e deu negativo. Vou descobrir isso. Se n?o foi l?, ocorreu o cont?gio onde. Isso ? muito estranho", disse o pai, que espera por mais informa??es da Secretaria Estadual de Sa?de sobre a morte do filho.

    " S? mandaram colocar a m?scara. Hoje (ontem), anunciaram a confirma??o da morte por gripe A para todo mundo e s? depois, ? noite, me ligaram para me dizer. Isso n?o se faz", disse ele.

    Tamb?m traumatizado, o filho mais velho, que teria sido contagiado na escola pela professora, e depois infectado o irm?o, estaria se sentindo culpado. "Anunciaram para todo mundo que ele tinha infectado o outro. Familiares, amigos, colegas de trabalho e da escola sabem quem somos. N?s j? estamos curados, mas as pessoas podem ter preconceito. Isso magoa."

    Indicado para falar pela secretaria, o diretor do Centro Estadual de Vigil?ncia em Sa?de, Francisco Paz, afirmou que entende a dor do pai e reconhece os obst?culos de conter e tratar a doen?a. "Tendo em vista o inusitado desta epidemia, acredito que todas as dificuldades s?o decorrentes de uma situa??o at? ent?o desconhecida. As medidas tomadas pelos setores de sa?de foram certas, infelizmente ocorreu uma trag?dia."

    Paz afirmou que os casos suspeitos da escola foram examinados e descartados. A Secretaria da Sa?de prefere manter o nome da institui??o em segredo para evitar o p?nico na escola, visto que j? se passou o per?odo mais cr?tico ? o de incuba??o.

    Entenda o caso

    Segundo a Secretaria Estadual de Sa?de, o menino n?o foi diagnosticado com a nova gripe. ?Ele teve sintomas de gripe, mas foi atendido por um m?dico particular, porque n?o havia suspeita de cont?gio pela nova gripe. O m?dico tamb?m n?o identificou a doen?a e ele foi levado para um hospital em Porto Alegre. S? neste hospital desconfiaram que poderia ser o v?rus A, mas a Vigil?ncia Sanit?ria de Sapucaia do Sul n?o foi informada pela secretaria estadual.

    O secret?rio informou ao G1 que se tratava de um menino com ?defici?ncias neurol?gicas? e que, por isso, estava com a imunidade baixa. O menino teria sido contaminado por um irm?o, que teve contato com uma professora que viajou para a Argentina e contraiu o v?rus. Apesar de j? ter passado o per?odo de cont?gio, Wink afirma que a fam?lia da v?tima ser? monitorada.

    Segunda morte no estado

    De acordo com a Secretaria de Sa?de do Rio Grande do Sul, o caso do menino de 9 anos ? considerado a segunda morte causada pela doen?a no estado.

    O secret?rio estadual de Sa?de, Osmar Terra, confirmou ao G1 que a crian?a tinha "problemas de ordem neurol?gica que podem ter contribu?do ou n?o" para a sua morte. Ainda de acordo com ele, o irm?o da v?tima, que tamb?m foi contaminado, j? se recuperou.

    Terra afirmou que o menino foi atendido em Porto Alegre, em um hospital considerado refer?ncia no estado, e foram feitos todos os esfor?os necess?rios no atendimento. O secret?rio negou que tenha ocorrido problema de comunica??o ou demora no tratamento.

    Terceira morte no pa?s

    Essa foi a terceira morte pela nova gripe no pa?s. A primeira v?tima da doen?a foi um caminhoneiro ga?cho de 29 anos, que faleceu em junho. Na ?ltima sexta-feira (10), foi confirmada a morte de uma menina moradora de Osasco, em S?o Paulo.

    De acordo com o ?ltimo balan?o do Minist?rio da Sa?de, divulgado na sexta-feira, chega a 1.027 o n?mero de registros da doen?a provocada pelo v?rus Influenza A (H1N1), desde os primeiros casos de infec??o verificados no Brasil, no dia 8 de maio.

    Em nota, nesta segunda, o Minist?rio da Sa?de lamentou o caso do garoto ga?cho e informou que um novo balan?o deve ser lan?ado na quarta-feira (15). O governo afirma que quem apresentar sintomas de gripe (como febre, tosse, coriza e dores de garganta, de cabe?a ou pelo corpo) deve procurar atendimento m?dico.
