So far this year, the rate of Dengue cases in Yucatan already exceeds the number of cases reported in all 2014, as was revealed by a spokesperson of the Federal Ministry of Health on September 1st. In the past three weeks, more than 100 cases per week have been registered.
Additionally, an increase on the incidence of Chikungunya statewide has been registered, especially in the Eastern part of the state, as well as in Merida.
According to the National Epidemiological Surveillance System (Sistema Nacional de Vigilancia Epidemiológica: SINAVE), both deseases have increased considerably in Yucatan, 25 new cases of chikungunya and dengue are recorded daily.
So far this year, 100 new cases of Chikungunya were confirmed as well as 633 new cases of Dengue. Fortunately, no fatalities have been reported.
Just under a month ago, more than 100 cases per week were registered, due to several different factors, such as puddles scattered on roads and vacant lots, making the rain the main source of both diseases.
So far, Yucatan is in sixth place of the Dengue’s incidence table, and ninth place in the Chikungunya’s incidence table.
Just in the Yucatan Peninsula, 253 cases of Chikungunýa have been registered so far this year, 55.3% in Campeche, 39.5% in Yucatan, and the remaining 5.1% in Quintana Roo.
Regionally speaking, there are 425,000 people who’ve had Dengue, of which 44.4% are in Yucatan, 35.2% in Quintana Roo, and the remaining 20.3% in Campeche.
