Vila Bourghese, Santa Luzia, Acacia Valley and Regina Garden are the regions with the highest rates recorded. Essay 07 Nov 2019 at 12 h 47 services                                                  Comments Pindamonhangaba recorded the result of the 4th Larval Density Assessment (ADL), referring to October 2019 with an average of 0.7, an index considered satisfactory, following the parameters of the Ministry of Health that recommends rates below 1. In January recorded 3.6, April 3.1, July 0.9 and 0.7 in October 2019. According to information from the City Health Secretariat, the highest rates of Aedes aegypti larvae were found in the “Central” and “Moreira César” regions (Vila Bourghese and Santa Luzia 1. 14 and Vale das Acácias and Jd. Regina 1. 46). Rafael Lamana, director of the Department of Health Risk and Health Protection, explains that the average obtained from the 5. 720 properties visited, of 0.7, is considered satisfactory by the Ministry of Health, but the indexes of the “Central” and “Moreira César” regions put us on alert as the indexes exceed the limit recommended by the federal agency, which needs to be less than 1. “This index brings us, that every 100 Real estate visited in more than 1, on average, were found larvae of the mosquito Aedes aegypti, dengue transmitter, Zika virus, chikungunya and yellow fever, “he said. “ADL aims to predict the range of incidence in which the municipality fits and to anticipate a possible epidemic of diseases.” One factor that can cause even more damage to public health is that there is no official information from the Ministry of Health regarding the supply of insecticide to fight the mosquito on a large scale, ie, we will not have inputs to perform thermal fogging – car smoke – as it is popularly known. So prevention is the best and the only way right now to mitigate a possible epidemic of dengue, Chikungunya, Zika virus and yellow fever. Continually, the City Hall Vector Control team conducts real estate surveys in the municipality, and only with the participation of the population can we keep the properties free of possible Aedes aegypti mosquito breeding grounds. In order to maintain the absence of mosquito breeding, the indication is not to leave standing water in any place, that is, not to leave an object exposed to the open air that may accumulate water, to redouble the attention in plant / dripping pots, external drains, containers of animal use, tires, water tank not connected to the network, among others, as they are places of popular knowledge and routinely found the larvae that contributed to the measurement of ADL. “The fight against Aedes aegypti breeding is a mandatory action for all citizens, private institutions and the public power,” Lamana emphasized. “For this reason, we need the collaboration of the population, keeping their property in a good state of conservation, leaving the yards clean, without rubble or place and objects that can accumulate water.
