During the current dry season, the Jalisco Ministry of Health (SSJ) maintains preventive actions against dengue, and calls on the population to join in the elimination of possible mosquito breeding sites, in order to reduce the risk of contagion during the rainy season, when mosquitoes that transmit the disease proliferate.
The strategy has achieved that for seven consecutive weeks no case of the disease has been confirmed in the state; and that to date only one non-serious case of dengue has been reported so far in 2022 (reported in epidemiological week 01 of the year). As part of the preventive actions, this week SSJ brigadistas are going house to house in the Crucero de la Mesa neighborhood, located in the north of the municipality of Zapopan, carrying out various activities to prevent dengue infections, a disease transmitted by the female Aedes aegypti mosquito.
“We started larval control activities on Tuesday, March 1, intradomiciliary spraying in the positive blocks of the area,” said the coordinator of the Vector and Zoonosis program of the Sanitary Region X Zapopan-Centro, María de los Ángeles Gómez Partida. “With such works, a population of 34,400 inhabitants will be protected.
