Less COVID-19, but dengue threatens western Cuba

ARTEMISA, Cuba, Nov 18 (ACN) The province of Artemisa is tending to control COVID-19, but the arrival of tourists and the detection of dengue cases in the region demands observance of the health protocols to avoid a fresh outbreak of the virus and prevent the spread of the disease transmitted by the Aedes Agypti mosquito.

“Despite the downward trend in the number of cases,” said provincial director of Public Health Yanelis Amador Borrego, “we need to reinforce the COVID-19 vaccination campaign now that the province was selected to participate in a clinical trial with the vaccines Mambisa and Abdala for convalescents.”

Along with the reduction of COVID-19 in the province, the hospitals are receiving more and more cases of dengue, a disease characterized by intense and sustained abdominal pain, frequent vomiting, irritability and unusual sleepiness, fainting, mucosal bleeding and increased hematocrit (blood volume occupied by red blood cells).

Cuba launched on Monday an intensive campaign against the Aedes Aegypti, the main transmitter of dengue and other dangerous diseases.
