The Ten Centers for Territorial Integration (CIT) rodenticide bait are available to all residents of the city of Posadas, an initiative that is part of decentralization activities that have been developed to prevent the spread of rodents.
Each delivery point has a trained person who will give recommendations and all the information needed to properly handle the poison and thereby achieve optimal use.
At the same time, technicians from the Department of Zoonoses at the Department of Epidemiology and Health Surveillance travel with temporary strategic sites in order to allow the crew to have access to this preventive element.
They have already visited farms 149 and 181, the central building of the municipality, the San Martín and de de Julio squares, and the headquarters of the Social Welfare Institute, located in Ayacucho Street near San Martino.
In addition, from the municipality informed that they are interested in receiving rodenticidal bait can also access the headquarters of the Department of Zoonoses, located at the intersection of 22 de Diciembre and Bermudez streets, from 7:30 to 12.
Leptospirosis and Hantavirus
The elimination of hantavirus in Epuyene, Chubut and other isolated cases in Salti, Entre Ríos and the Province of Buenos Aires triggered an alertness of people in the ranks of the population of Posadas.
Although there are no records on people infected with Huma virus in Misiones in this last period, warnings also come from cases of leptospirosis studied in Oberi, and neighbors from San Pedro who had to be treated in Samica Eldorada before the diagnosis of leptospirosis he received.
Municipal Health Secretary Alejandro Martinez told a few days ago that consultations and orders for rat removal bats that the municipality frees up for free in each Territorial Integration Center (CIT) has increased since December last year.
"Demand has increased over the last few weeks, especially because of cases of hantavirus in the south, not so much because of leptospirosis," he said. Such a request was that what was set for a month in 20 days exhausted was warned.
