More than 100 health workers have trained to fight arboviruses


Training shows new methods of fighting and preventing Aedes aegypti.

Rio Claro Municipal Health Organization, through the Zoonoses Control Center, holds periodic meetings from the beginning of February with urban health agents for discussions on the topic "Discuss the news in the arbovirus fight".

The arbovirus is the diseases caused by the arboviruses known as the dengue virus, zika virus, chikungunya and yellow fever, transmitted from the mosquitoes Aedes aegypti.
There are a total of 113 trained agents. The meetings, held once a week, took place on 1, 8 and 15 February. A new meeting will be held this Friday (22), in the Auditorium II of the Department of Education at NAM (Municipal Administrative Core) from 13 to 16 hours. As well as meetings in the previous ones, the training participants will receive a certificate.

With the rainy weather, typical of summer, the eggs deposited by the Aedes in the winter months begin to cover, threatening the health of the people. Tires, containers, plastic pots, aquatic plants, meals used in plant pots and even simple soda cap can be dangerous.
Rio Claro's Department of Health reinforces the call to the population not to dispose of litter in many vacancies and inappropriate areas, or to keep any scams or any material that could collect stable water where there is a larvae & # 39; the mosquitoes are developing. Further information on the work of agents and the Zoonoses Control Center can be obtained by telephoning 3523-8663, including on Saturdays from 8 am to 1 pm.
