The governor of Minas Gerais, Antonio Anastasia, announced on Tuesday (13), government actions to tackle dengue in 2012. The new measures will continue the work being done by the task force to combat the disease, consisting of members of the military and health care. The number of reported cases in Mining fell 77% in 2011 over the previous year.

Anastasia warned of the severity of the disease and urged the population to go on alert for it to be eradicated. It is essential that every citizen, within your home, your home, can fight dengue, decreasing or eliminating sources of mosquito. Only then will overcome dengue absolutely. So it is crucial that this campaign, for which the press is essential, but that each person in your house, get a reversal and end the focus of the mosquito in the house, the governor said in an interview.

During the announcement of the plan, the government gave the task force 44 vehicles, 31 trucks and Strada, ten mini-buses and three trucks. Were also passed safety equipment - mask, gloves, helmet, earplugs, safety glasses, impervious apron - and coastal spray pumps.

The task force consists of 432 people, 200 soldiers of the Army, Air Force and 40 192 health workers. To eliminate possible sources of the mosquito, scans are made in areas considered at risk, such as houses, shops and vacant lots. Currently there are ten used buses, 70 cars smoke; 600 coastal pumps, nine trucks (Dengue mobile) and 20 Dengômetros (booths where people have access to information about the disease).

I think the most positive outcome was the participation of society. Then keep obsessively intensifying the mobilization of people. The foci are at home, most breeding sites are generated by household waste. We must then actually win this war with a large membership of society. This is not an innovation, is an assurance that remain on track, said the health secretary, Antonio Jorge, who presented the State Program for Permanent Control of Dengue.
