According to a survey carried out last week by the Vector Program, under the Ministry of Public Health, a significant number of breeding sites were registered in Valle Fertil, especially in San Agustín.
This was confirmed in a dialogue with Radio Sarmiento, Liliana Salva, director of the aforementioned program, who also assured that: “we do not have the circulation of the virus, but it is dangerous because the amount we have is really a lot. That is why on Monday an agreement was signed with the Mayor to proceed to eliminate the hatcheries. In this way we are going to work in the departments, especially the Great San Juan, which is where it was also detected in a dangerous manner. “
Salva said that the rains that affected the province during the month of January, helped provoke a greater number of larvae than previous years.
