Campinas (SP) reported that the number of dengue-infected patients reached 7,971, up 45% from the previous week, when the Department of Health (Devisa) had 5,493 confirmed cases. In addition, since 2017, the village has registered the first yellow fever monkey. At that time, there were nine primates positive for the disease.
The balance sheet shows that the northwest region, where the Campo Grande district is located, is most hit in Campinas, with 2,463 positive cases. The southern region comes in turn, with 2061 infected. The number of cases examined is 1,252.
Devisa director Andrea Von Zuben says the village has seen new cases decline in recent weeks. "We started to reduce the number, but cases are increasing because we confirm suspects," he explained.
According to Andrea, the number of people infected this year is "higher than expected" and the city is not talking more about the projection. A week ago, the director said he estimated that the city could reach up to 10,000 cases, due to the rate of virus transmission in the city.
