The proliferation of mosquito tigers in the south of France has led to 18 dengue infections in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d 'Azur region and probably chikungunya, regional health agency said, while no case has been detected for now.
"These are just imported cases, not indigenous, something happening every year, do not dramatize," LRA mitigated, while Reunion Island is currently hit by an epidemic. And to clarify: "It is about motherhood when a person has had a disease on the national territory and has not traveled to the contaminated zone in 15 days before the onset of the symptoms."
Although the region is familiar with these epidemics of proliferation, the Agency reminded of the precautionary measures that are beginning to strongly recommend removing all water supplies in nature.
For its part, ARS Nouvelle-Aquitaine will organize mosquito control operation next Tuesday in Bergerac, Dordogne, after a person has been infected with a dengue fever for a few days. Target? "Remove all the tigers of mosquitoes present in places where dense fever is often present" because these tiger mosquitoes could be infected with dense fever if they stumped this person, France Bleu Agency said.
