The birth of larvae in Paraguay triggers warnings

Asunción, Jan 25 (Prensa Latina) The Paraguayan health authority's signal is still in red light due to the high degree of mosquito larvae infection by Aedes Aegypti, the dengue transmitter and the chikungunya.

Sources of the Health Surveillance Directorate (DVS) note that the level of larval contamination, when it exceeds one percent, begins the risk since the larvae are installed in the hatcheries and promote the spread of the mosquito transmitter, Aedes aegypti.

Across the country, the level exceeds that percentage to confirm the need to clean the patios and places where water can accumulate, health authorities said.

Water stuck in solid waste and unused as containers, plastics, toilets that are not used and even scrap promotes the ideal breeding of larvae underlined by the Ministry of Public Health and Social Welfare.

"The highest percentage of mosquito breeding sites are in the homes," they say.

So far, four dengue cases and the same number of Chikungun in Central and Alto Parana have been confirmed, with Ciudad del Este and Minga Guazú having the highest accumulation of notifications.

The Senepa National Service for the Disposal of Malaria (Senepa) reports that Luke is the city most threatened by an eventual massive dengue outbreak because of an average of 20% larvae.

In the capital, indices exceed 11%, and in 67 districts mosquito breeding sites are found.

Sennapi's official, graduate Edgar Sanabria, stressed that these indicators were in houses where the check was carried out, "and have breeding sites in sites that are no longer useful as old refrigerators, disposable buckets and tires."

He pointed out that the only way to reduce these large numbers is by informing and educating the population.

Which means, says connoisseurs, a difficult and long task for the staff to be protected for him and for the means.
