Transmission of Dengue Fever, Zika and Chikungunya Declines in Mexico

August 30, 2017

Mexico has been able to reduce the transmission of dengue fever, chikungunya, and zika ailments starting from an integral strategy, Jesús Felipe González, director of the National Center of Diseases Control and Prevention Programs of the Public Health Ministry said Tuesday.

So far this year, Gonzalez commented, 3,945 cases were confirmed, representing a decrease of nearly 44 percent compared to the same period in 2016.

The trend on the reduction of diseases transmitted by the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, said Gonzalez, will continue.

The specialist said that the package of measures put in force, in order to anticipate the occurrence of outbreaks, gave a different spin to the struggle that for years the public health authorities had fought unsuccessfully against the vector.

Systematic control has been efficient, plaguicides were no longer used since the mosquitos became resistant to all of them.

Of almost 64,000 reported cases in 2013, the figure came down to less than 18,000 in 2016.

This shows the effectiveness of prevention and protection plans.
