Massive Campaign Against Mosquitos; 38 Zika Cases Confirmed

Just as thousands of Nicaraguans were recovering from the lingering joint pains of Chikungunya, the Zika virus arrived in Nicaragua with two confirmed cases announced on Jan. 27. On Feb. 8, Government Communications Coordinator Rosario Murillo said that the total number of confirmed cases had reached 38, including four pregnant women. Cases confirmed by blood tests over the weekend included a 56 year old man, a five year old girl, a 14 year old girl, and a 25 year old woman. Thirty cases are in Managua and the rest are from Masaya, Chinandega, Leon, Nueva Segovia, Carazo, and Granada.

More than 700,000 volunteers and officials from the Ministry of Health participated in the ongoing National Anti - Epidemic Campaign over the weekend. The Anti – Zika Virus Campaign is emphasizing prevention, through cleaning and collection of garbage to eradicate potential mosquito breeding sites. The Health Ministry said that workers have visited 246,000 homes nationally with cleanup efforts and fumigation, eliminating 1,232,760 places where the Aedes aegypti mosquito could lay its eggs. Over 2,000 schools have been fumigated. During the campaign, 1,889 people with fevers were sent to the nearest health center to be tested for the three diseases carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, dengue fever, Chikungunya, and Zika.
