1.6 Million homes were identified with outbreaks of dengue and Zika virus

Agência Brasil - Aedes aegypti agents have visited since January 48.2 million properties in Brazil, including homes, public and commercial buildings.

During the visits, 1.6 million properties were identified with outbreaks of the mosquito, which represents 3.36% of the total of the inspected.

The government's goal is for that number to be reduced to less than 1% of real estate with mosquito breeding sites. The survey was released on November 4 by the National Coordination and Control Room for Coping with Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika.

In this first cycle of visits, the inspections had the participation of 266 thousand community health agents and 46 thousand control of endemics, and with the support of the military.

In comparison with the last balance sheet of the Coordination Room, released on February 26, there was a 16.1% increase in visits. So far, 93% of the cities, or 5,164 of the 5,570 Brazilian municipalities, have been inspected.

"If the substance becomes a supplement, it does not replace any medical treatment and drugs already proven effective against the disease," said the minister. This recommendation will be made because the compound produced by the University of São Paulo (USP) is not toxic, according to Pansera. He said that since there is a population demand for the legalization of the substance, the best way is to authorize its sale as a dietary supplement until the research investigating its efficacy against cancer is concluded.
