The main of these actions is the fumigation of areas where dengue cases are reported, in order to cut transmission, however, the pandemic hampered some of these preventions.

“We are taking actions since the COVID pandemic is present; we have been treating cases of suspected dengue patients where we do fumigation work. What we could not do was the application of larvicide in the water tanks, due to the specific situation of the pandemic, he mentioned.

The coordinator revealed that one of the actions that has not been neglected is discarding, from which 20 to 24 tons of carracho are removed for each colony.
