Marcelo Lopes – Levantamenro reveals eleven fourth Cataguases with Aedes Aegypti

Catagasy Index of 2.82% of mosquitoes, according to research

The infestation rate in Cataguases is 2.82% of mosquitoes, according to the study


End-of-life control of the municipal health department has held the fourth stage of LIRA and LIA since 2018, from 22 to 26 October. These are Fast Index Survey Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (LIRAa) and Amostral Index Survey (LIA), which are the methodologies used to identify and map the presence of mosquitoes that transmit dengue fever and other diseases in the municipality, an initiative encouraged by the Ministry of Health.

According to Cosme Tadeu Alves da Costa's endemic control unit, the fourth survey coincides with the rainy season of the year, so it should be considered more important – and not that other surveys are conducted every two months are not relevant – since time is best for vectors proliferation. In this fourth phase, the number of real estates surveyed by endemic agents in the city is 1,027, of which 29 revealed the presence of Aedes aegypti, corresponding to the Mosquito infestation index of 2,82%.

pictureSimilarly, according to the report presented by the sector, 33 districts were examined, of which 11 positive outcomes. The research also reveals dominant deposits, which are places where the presence of mosquitoes is more common. They are jars or jars with water, a bowl of desserts, fountains in general, ornamental fountains and building materials. The number of properties with the presence of Aedes albopictus was 8, and mosquito infestation was 0.78%.

The results of the LIAs were shown in the agglomerations with the presence of vectors when 936 properties were tested, of which 11 had Aedes aegypti, an infestation index of 1.17%. Ten sites were tested and four had positive results for mosquitoes. In the rural area the prevailing deposits were pots or glass jars with water, jars for pots, drinking fountains in general, ornamental fountains and building materials, as well as rubber and other valuable materials that were able to remove Cosme dos Santos. However, in the report, ten properties were present in Aedes albopictus, which means that the infection was 1.07%.

It is important to remember that the rate of infection advocated by the Ministry of Health is less than 1%, and the results leave the municipality on the alert. "That is so, given that we are in the rainy season, the numbers are bearable and this year we have had more worrying percentages," said the coordinator. He also emphasized that the rainy season should always be looked at with greater concern, as the strong component is fueling the possible epidemic of mosquito-related diseases. Furthermore, it emphasizes the importance of constant monitoring of the population, regularly takes care of the possible outbreaks of mosquitoes. "It is well known that 80% of these outbreaks are in homes, and the population must be aware that it is part of that control," he said.


Cosme dos Santos also said that the Endemic Control Center vectors strategy maintains its daily work of focal treatment and removal of deposits. Research shows the most critical areas in which work is done with greater emphasis, working all the blocks of areas where the results were positive by using larvicide and mechanical control, which is the elimination of deposits, an action that is immediately triggered after LIRA and LIA results. The coordinator also said that, according to several infectiousists in the country, the following year has a great potential for a dengue fever epidemic, as rainfall in the end of 2018 was higher than in previous years, dengue fever, seasonal disease studies show that epidemic occurs every two years . "But it is possible to break this cycle with the awareness of the population and the actions of all of us, so that denigration is actually eradicated from our country," he concluded.
