As part of the 27th edition of the Aedes aegypti Rapid Index Survey (LIRAa), municipal technicians have already inspected some 7,000 post-Adelant homes in different parts of the city.
The study carried out by the government of Posadas and the Ministry of Public Health will allow to know the epidemiological situation of the different neighborhoods and then establish specific actions according to the reality of each area.
During the visits, recommendations are given to avoid the presence of potential breeding sites and control the spread of mosquitoes transmitting dengue virus, chikungunya and zika.
At the same time, disposal tasks are performed, giving the homeowner the ability to discard appliances, buckets, or other unused elements that collect water unnecessarily.
Karen López, head of the Statistics Department of the Municipal Institute of Surveillance and Vector Control, explained that "we are having a good acceptance of the neighbors that allow us to enter their homes to carry out this task.We have fewer rejections than in previous editions, that we interpret that the LIRAa is being installed in the society as a tool of work ".
