The city of Mangalore, in the Costa Verde, the south coast of the state, received a mobile laboratory for water analysis this Friday (11). So far, the city accounts for more than 90 cases of hepatitis A. The measure aims to prevent the outcome of cases.

The mobile laboratory is located in a truck from the National Health Foundation (Funasa) and will complement the tests that are already being conducted by the Central Laboratory Noel Nutels, state government, analyzing the quality of water in various localities of the city. The unit will work integrating the work of technicians from the State Department of Health, the Municipal Department of Health and Funasa.

Mangalore has, in total, 37 000 inhabitants and is the least populated municipality of your micro. To date, the affected area is the first district, home to 15,000 people. According to the Superintendent of Environmental Surveillance and SES-RJ, Alexander Chieppe, the situation of Hepatitis A in Mangalore inspires care.

The situation is worrying. So we're here with a great team to evaluate and monitor the situation. I can not say that the peak transmission of the disease has passed, then the situation is alert. It is possible that more cases arise. We will monitor day after day. Also orient people to avoid contamination in the home. The informative and educational material is already being distributed by the city, explained Chieppe.
