In Paraná, in 2012 were 3068 confirmed cases of dengue, which represents a 90% reduction compared with 2010

Since 2010, the number of confirmed cases of dengue has been reducing gradually throughout Paraná. In 2012 were 3068 confirmed cases of dengue, which represents a 90% reduction compared with 2010, which recorded 33,456 cases of the disease.

As reported by the State Department of Health, with constant vigilance to combat disease and support to municipalities, it was possible to reverse the situation encountered in early 2011, when the state was facing an epidemic of the disease. Our objective was to trigger actions to contain the spread of dengue and structuring care services to patients to prevent deaths said Secretary of Health, Michele Caputo Neto. In 2011 were 28,970 confirmed cases of dengue, a decrease of 13% compared to 2010.

The number of deaths from the disease also decreased. In 2010 and 2011, 15 deaths were reported each year in 2012 and only one person died in the state due to dengue. One reason for this decline is the investment made in training of health professionals for diagnosis and treatment. Professionals are also more attentive and population. This is important because the symptoms of dengue are similar to other diseases, says the coordinator of the dengue situation room, Ronaldo Trevisan.

The Situation Room Dengue also released the new numbers newsletter with the disease in Paraná. From August 2012 until this Monday (7) have been confirmed 478 cases of dengue, of which one had the severe form of the disease, but has been cured. So far no deaths were recorded and municipalities with the highest number of cases were Peabiru (182), St. Charles Ivaí (91) and Paranavaí (49).

Since 2011, the Paraná started to use a different methodology to analyze chronological cases of dengue. The schedule takes into account the epidemiological curve of the disease, which usually has its peak during the summer. Thus, the data begin to be analyzed in August and are closed in July of the following year.

According to the Situation Room of Dengue, 97 municipalities are in a state of alert because they present infestation rates between 1% and 4%. Some counties had rates below 1% but have occurrence of dengue cases, like Peabiru in the northwest of the state, which already counts 182 confirmed cases.
