Dengue Cases Increase in El Salvador

SAN SALVADOR - A total of 1965 cases of dengue, including 46 of hemorrhagic type, were recorded this year in El Salvador, said today Health Minister, Maria Isabel Rodriguez.

The number of infected continues to climb, although two weeks ago the authorities ordered the yellow alert and increased measures to contain the disease.

Only in recent days, the authorities have found 255 new patients, although, fortunately, there have not been any death, said the minister.

The government allocated an additional budget of $1.100.000 to buy medicines, solve logistical aspects, and pay the additional medical staff for the emergency.

At the same time, prevention, fumigations, cleaning of debris, and elimination of breeding places of aedes aegypti mosquito; transmitter of the virus, continue.

The Pan American Health Organization recommended maintaining the measures at least eight months to stop the tide of infections.

Dengue causes high fever, headache and joint ache, and in the hemorrhagic variant, can be fatal.

The disease caused here last year at least a dozen dead, mostly children.
