The report of the Secretariat of Health of Paraná, released on Wednesday (1), reports a 92% reduction in confirmed cases of dengue. The reports also fell, but in smaller proportion, 5.29%. Over this period, only 23 cases were confirmed, while in the same period last year were 3,122 cases.

According to the department, notifications decreased from 13,088 to 12,395 during the same period. This means that in the past period, the four reported cases, one was confirmed and will be shown every 52 reported cases, only one is confirmed.

This reduction occurs for different reasons, according to the Superintendent of Health Surveillance, Sezifredo Peace One is the accountability on the part of municipalities that have undertaken to adapt the script for supervision applied by the regional health. The issues raised in supervision scripts in each municipality were very specific and most of them corrected the problems identified, said.

Another factor is the investment made in training of health professionals for diagnosis and treatment of dengue. Professionals and people are more aware, too, because the symptoms of dengue are similar to other diseases, says the superintendent. The orientation is passed on to professionals who always suspected dengue, even if the case is disposed of in the future.

According to Ivana Belmonte, head of the Environmental Surveillance, another positive for the reduction is that it was the introduction of a new serotype of dengue virus. As there have been epidemics of dengue fever in previous years and remained the same serotype circulating, a large portion of the population is already immune, he said.
