The state’s environment facilitates the proliferation of this disease.
MERIDA — Yellow fever could occur in Yucatan at any time, since the state has the characteristics for the development of that disease, such as the presence of the mosquito Aedes aegypti and jungle areas, so that it should be under clinical alert, said Dr. Rusel Rodríguez Sánchez, an infectious disease specialist and immunologist at a private hospital in the city.
In that sense, he said that measures should be established to prevent the disease, such as stricter controls at the borders like checking who arrives at the state and to demand that travelers from the airport be vaccinated, especially those who come from countries with a high risk of suffering this disease, such as Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela. This measure should also apply to Yucatecans that travel to those nations, he suggested.
Although the arrival of yellow fever is not a fact yet, he said, it is possible that it is present due to the presence of mosquitoes, jungle area and people traveling to endemic regions with this health problem. These factors open the possibility of developing the disease of urban type in the population.
That is why we must be extremely aware of the entry of people at risk of suffering from the disease and require vaccination, as well as people leaving Mexico to those risk areas, he remarked.
The doctor commented that countries like the United States and Canada are very strict around these health problems, which in Mexico are often overlooked.
