"The recommendation is not to create outdoor containers that accumulate rainwater."
Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya are three diseases transmitted by Aedes Aegypti. From the Ministry of Health, they reaffirm the importance of eliminating possible reservoirs for mosquitoes.
In this sense, the Minister of Health Jorge Basso explained:
"We are in full harvest. There is a combination of heat and rain. Everything suggests that this summer we will have a higher density of mosquitoes. This is not a mosquito, which is beyond the reach of the place where we live.
This is a mosquito, which we will not find in large water mirrors, in parks: we will find it in our house, it must bite people in order to continue.
It is in close proximity to the address. It is recommended to avoid creating outdoor containers that accumulate rainwater, because it creates conditions for its reproduction. ”
