MERIDA, YUCATAN (SSY) .- Conjunctivitis, the disease that reached its highest peak in Yucatan in 2017, has resurged strongly in this start of 2019: in only 26 days the National System of Epidemiological Surveillance (SINAVE) of the federal Ministry of Health received reports of 1,200 cases diagnosed in the entity, at a rate of 46 each day.
In its most recent weekly epidemiological bulletin, SINAVE cites statistics of conjunctivitis up to week four of the year, that is, until January 26.
