"The recommendation is to avoid the creation of open-air containers that accumulate rainwater."
Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya are three diseases transmitted by Aedes aegypti. The Ministry of Public Health reiterates the importance of eliminating possible reservoirs for the mosquito.
In this regard, the Minister of Health, Jorge Basso, explained:
"We are in full harvest. There is a combination of heat and rain. Everything suggests that we will have a higher density of mosquitoes this summer. It is not a mosquito that is out of the reach of where we live.
It is a mosquito that can not be found in large water mirrors, parks: we will find it in our home, it needs to be spicy for people to breed.
It is in the vicinity of the address. The recommendation is to avoid generating open-air containers that accumulate rainwater, because this generates the conditions so that it can reproduce. "
