MOJOKERTO – At the entrance of the transition period, the community must be particularly careful in maintaining health conditions.
One of them is cautious of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) attacks. Because the tendency of the disease caused by the mosquito bite aedes aegypti increases with the passing of the seasons.
Langit Kresna Janitra, head of the Mojokerto Regional Office for Disease Prevention and Control (P2P), explained that the risk of spreading dengue disease is higher at the time of the changing age of the present.
Considering that the intensity of rain that causes stagnant water increases mosquito reproduction. "In addition, the rain is still not decreasing regularly every day." This makes mosquitoes grow, "he explained.
Therefore, in the transition from land to rainy season or vice versa, the number of cases of dengue fever tends to be high. Therefore, this time should be accompanied by the growing prediction of the Aedes aegypti attack.
An effective effort is none other than the mosquito nets (PSN) eradication. "We are still preparing for blur, but we continue to give priority to PSN," he explained.
Not only that. Environmental cleanliness is just as important. Because there are few cases of dengue fever in the slum environment or used goods.
"There are many signs about the status of indigenous areas of dengue fever," he said. The health office noted that up to 323 cases of people treated for DHF.
This figure exceeded the number of cases of dengue fever last year, with 320 cases. This number still has the potential to increase.
Given the end of this year is the beginning of the rainy season. In the period from October to November alone, the number of cases reached the 38 residents who were reported to be bored by the mosquito aedes aegypti.
The former head of the Pacet Community Health Center added that the distribution of dengue fever occurred in almost all neighborhoods. "Previously there were no cases in mountainous areas, but now there are cases," he explained.
According to Langit, this is due to the sensitization of people who have not fully promoted PSN. He explained, the Puri Region recorded the highest number with 63 cases in the period January-November.
It followed the Sooko District with 41 cases. Subsequently, 29 cases were submitted to Bangsal, while Trowulan and Mojosari recorded 24 cases.
Langit said DHF is one of the most dangerous diseases. In order not to fall victim, residents must be able to detect early symptoms of the disease caused by this dengue virus
"Consequently, fever symptoms should be immediately monitored in health care," he added. The effort was made to ensure that there was no delay in handling.
Because of the 323 cases of dengue fever, 32 of them had the state of DHS or were in a dangerous situation.
Because bleeding has occurred and is likely to cause damage to the organ system leading to death. "All cases can be dealt with, so that there are no victims," he concluded.
