The doctor and writer Varella Varella is the "poster boy" of the government of the Holy Spirit in the campaign against dengue. In a campaign created by the health department is sending medical information and care tips to prevent the proliferation of Aedes aegypti throughout the year. According to Secretary of Health Varella's choice is due to him being regarded as one of the professionals who contributed most to popularize the medicine in the country in educational programs on television and radio.

In three videos, each a minute, he guides the people on care and prevention care and teaches several indoors to prevent the Aedes aegypti reproduce, both in summer and winter. It is an educational campaign that directs people about what should be done to tackle the disease, which has proved to be serious. And, thus, reducing transmission, incidence and also the deaths. For this to happen, we rely on the whole society, said Secretary of State for Health, Anselmo Tozi.

According to the secretary, the videos provide guidance on what can be done now and in a few months and also features tips to protect yourself against mosquito bites, symptoms and when and where to seek medical assistance. With the advertising campaign, we want to alert the citizens, municipalities, officials of dengue prevention, community leaders, religious, political, business, or involve the whole society to fight the disease, lists Tozi Anselmo.

The secretary said that the first of the videos, which will be on for one month from this Friday (04), will focus on the fight against dengue fever in the period before the summer, when there is a decrease in the number of cases due to factors climate, and not because of control.

The campaign will run statewide for open channels of television in order to disclose, so massive, society's role during the low transmissibility of the disease, since approximately 90% of the outbreaks of dengue vector are at home.

Numbers

According to the latest bulletin released by dengue Sesa, Aug. 31, were reported 205 cases of the disease in the state in the thirty-third epidemiological week of 2009, which corresponds to between 16-22 weeks of August.
