Dengue: Another Case Registered at Morcellement St André

8 years, 3 months ago - April 02, 2014
Saturday, March 29 from noon Tuesday, April 1st noon, a case of dengue was detected in 609 samples analyzed. This is explained by the Ministry of Health said in a statement issued Tuesday, April 1. The infected person resides Morcellement St André, in region where the fumigation were held.

Now, the authorities intend to strengthen their operations throughout the region from Morcellement St-André and Balaclava, from North-West to Trou-aux-Biches and Pointe-aux-Piments, through Triolet. Thus, Monday, April 1, the second round of fumigation was already underway. So far, 35,510 homes and 3,297 vacant lots were covered by this exercise. 1285"Notices" were issued for non-compliance on the standing water on the roof and around houses. Several tickets were drawn at the end of the period prescribed in the Act before the first caution.  

The awareness campaign is held at Triolet and surrounding areas. This exercise is extended to ort-Louis, Plaine-Verte, Vallée-Pitot, Vallée-des-Prêtes, Cité-la-Cure, Camp Yoloff, Tranquebar and St. Croix. Over 5,000 notes were distributed in these locations. On the other hand, application of larvicide and continues to this day 43,657 homes and 2,000 brownfield sites were treated.

Moreover, in the wake of the fight against mosquitoes, the Ministry of Environment, the police and district councils have decided to break into abandoned homes, closed and locked. This is for fumigate places and get rid of stagnant water, including water pools. This initiative follows numerous complaints from residents of the northeast coast. "Normally we serve a notice to the owner and he does not respond within 48 hours, the Ministry of Health can remove the lock to complete its operation. We do this with the help of local authorities, " said Minister of Health, Lormus Bundhoo. He adds that there will be more and more such operations in the coming days. 

On the other hand, according to observations made by the officers of the Ministry of Health, millions (small fish in our rivers) control the proliferation of mosquitoes. However, their consumption by Bangladeshi workers would not help things regarding the threat of dengue.

Although authorities believe that those who consume these fish are not at risk, the problem remains that millions of people could decrease or even disappear. This would give the larvae a greater chance of developing into mosquitoes, resulting in accelerated proliferation. And it is then a phenomenon that concerns the authorities .
