Western Nile, next year, three disinfestations to prevent the spread of the virus. In 2018, he learned that climate change in the eyes of all – mosquitoes continues to proliferate in these hot days – in order to avoid the border situation and numerous cases that occurred during this season, it is good to solve the problem of the chest and prevent possible hazards. Regional Venetian Health Advisor, Luca Coletto, has announced that he will face an emergency fever of the Western Nile fever next spring that will be done for the disinfection of larvicide carpets and in the summer of two disinfestation of adults.
The timetable for the three interventions will be defined by the technicians, although it is assumed that the first disinfestation will be held in March, when the climate starts to warm up and the spring is felt.
The announcement was made yesterday at the opening of a thematic meeting in Venice, in the church of San Giovanni Evangelista, where updated information on the infection in Veneto was published. In comparison, experts from the scientific world, the Ministry of Health, various regions involved, Usl, Zooprofilattico Institute of Venezia, the Portuguese region of Madeira and the Romanian counties of Dali.
The participants were the General Manager of SANITA Veneto, Domenico Mantoan, Director of Infectious Diseases Department of the Department of Infectious Diseases of the Istituto Superiore di Sanita Giovanni Rezza, Head of Laboratory for Microbiology Padova, Regional Reference Center, Giorgio Palu, Director of Ircsa for Tropical Diseases at Negrar Hospital, Zeno Bisoffi.
Confirmed cases were 257 (256 maternal), the most serious of them being neuroinvasive, 64, while fatalities in 18 Padua (95 cases, of which 14 are serious) and Verona (51 cases, 14 serious) provinces more affected, with Rovigo (15 cases) in the first place for serious cases.
Colletto also announced that the monitoring, to be completed in October, will continue in November, given the prolonged climatic conditions suitable for spreading insects. If probable cases (98) and positivity found among blood donors (32) are added to confirmed cases, the total total amount reaches 408. Veneto has already established a cooperative relationship with Emilia Romagna, and the other region most affected by this phenomenon, and it is also on the extension of coordination with other regions. For monitoring, the region has already allocated 1.5 million euros, and disinfestation will be done by municipalities.
However, "zero companies" have been made available to run centralized tenders in order to keep costs down. "As a region," he added, "we are creating a comprehensive co-ordination that will, from regional planning, include all Local Health Units, hospitals for the diagnostic part, the municipalities, the Reconstruction Consortium, the Istituto Zooprofilattico delle Venezie and will reach the citizens, whose preventive behavior , such as the installation of mosquitoes, the maintenance of gardens and drains, the use of repellents of the skin, is very important, since 70% of the territory is in private ownership, where the public can not get there. "
"We have to create," concluded Koleto, "a culture about this problem, which this year has been presented in a sensational way, but which will be repeated in the future too. It would be appropriate to think about centralized interventions."
"The experience of Venet and Emilia Romagna" recognizes
Reza "is an example of the organization and intensity of action. It would now be important to expand to all other regions, because we can not rule out further dissemination in 2019, and all monitoring and prevention measures must be implemented." –
