Dengue Alarm Spreads in Latin America

RIO DE JANEIRO, FEBRUARY 28 – The dengue alarm is spreading in Latin America, with a significant increase in cases in various countries in the region. In Brazil, nearly a million infections have been reported in the first two months of the year, leading to a state of emergency being declared in Peru.

In Argentina, the Ministry of Health has registered 57,210 infections since July 2023, with the majority being endemic cases. Mexico has also seen a dramatic increase in dengue cases, with numbers almost five times higher compared to the same period in 2023, rising from 958 to 5,439 cases.

The southern state of Guerrero in Mexico is the epicenter of the outbreak, accounting for almost 40% of cases with 2,071 infections. The increase in cases in Guerrero has been attributed to the impact of Hurricane Otis, which struck the region with winds exceeding 200 kilometers per hour last October, resulting in at least 50 deaths in the tourist resort of Acapulco.

Health authorities in the region are working to contain the spread of the disease and provide support to those affected by the outbreak. Stay updated on the latest developments on ANSA.it.
