Dengue killed at least 654 in the last decade in Minas Gerais


Four of the victims died this year; Deaths confirmed by the City Hall on Friday (10)

With only 0.5 cm in length and life cycle of maximum 35 days, the mosquito Aedes aegypti 650 people in Minas Gerais over the past ten years, according to a survey conducted by the Secretary of State for Health (SES) at the request of THE TIME. The victims continue to suffer victims: on Friday (10), Belo Horizontal City's first four deaths are due to severe Dengang in the capital this year. More than 92 deaths have been invested by SES. According to experts, these numbers have widened the need for a change of government and population attitude, so that mosquito breathing sites are eliminated.

More than 1.7 million probable cases (suspected and confirmed) were counted between 2009 and the first week of the month. The number of victims of the most serious type of disease in the last decade shows how dengue can be lethal. According to the president of the Mining Society of Infection, Estevão Urbano, when the human body arrives, the virus says inflammatory reaction over the body, which is usually cured in a few days, with natural antibodies and appropriate treatment. However, there are cases of patients who do not produce enough defenses, which increase the risk of death.

"Inflammation ZZ fluid to escape from blood vessels, blood pressure falls, and this leads to low oxygenation and reduced the supply of nutrients to organs such as liver, kidney and lungs. With hemorrhoids, the person can develop into death," he explains.


In a statement, SES reported that "dengue control measures, Zica and chickunia occur all year round and have increased in the warmer months where there is a greater incidence of disease." This year, the state reduced its emergency situation in six macro-regions and released resources to epidemic cities.

A biologist and researcher at the Oswaldo Cruise Institute, Denise Valle, points out the need for a change in scoring calculation with Deng. "There is no utility fighting the mosquito just when the outbreak is happening," he says.

Prior to her, the population needed to look at their own homes, where 80% of the mosquitoes were located, and to collect effective government measures: "There is no problem with throwing insecticide, but of hygiene, garbage collection, regular supply of water and Prevention ".
