The State Department of Health Department has warned the public this week about the symptoms, care and ways to prevent the spread of chickenpox. The reason is the arrival of spring, which begins on Friday (23) and helps to facilitate the transmission of varicella.

Despite the free supply of vaccine against the disease to counties since 2003, only in 2010 the department recorded 39,043 cases of the disease and by July 1413 were recorded in 2011. The worst years of the disease in the state was 2003, with 51,600 registered cases of chickenpox around the state.

"The vaccination of day care is very important because it prevents other children from becoming infected and preventing possible complications.", Says

For the director of the Division of Respiratory Disease Transmission, Center for Epidemiological Surveillance (CVE) of the Secretariat, Telma Regina Carvalhanas, "vaccination in day care is very important because it prevents other children from becoming infected and preventing possible complications." he says.

"It is necessary to keep the patient very well sanitized. Washes hands have to be excessive to avoid contaminating the bubbles and more serious infections occur," concludes Telma.
