The city of Ribeirao Preto, 336 kilometers (km) from Sao Paulo, has recorded 984 dengue cases since January this year. Historically, the city is one of the sites with more reports of disease in the state of Sao Paulo.

According to the State Department of Health, only in January, Ribeirão was responsible for almost half of all confirmed cases of dengue in the state.

Last month, 743 were confirmed records of the municipality disease and death, according to the Municipal Health Secretary Earlier this month, just before the last day 16 were 241 more cases of the disease.

The hot and humid this time of year encourages the proliferation of Aedes aegypti in the city, said the director of the Department of Health Surveillance in the city, Santa Maria Luiza Maria. We also have difficulties in reducing the supply of containers that are used for breeding of mosquitoes.

Despite the large number of cases in the city, Maria Luiza highlights the reduction of the records in comparison with the previous year. In January alone, according to her, fall was the fall of over 50%. According to the city in January 2010 were registered 1604 cases of the disease and in February 4442.
