Tropical events associated with rain in Cuba are reported at this time of the year. They favor the environmental conditions for the proliferation of vectors. And right there is the point of reflection: vigilance should not be neglected in the presence of the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

Las Tunas, Cuba.- Sanitary authorities of the territory announced, exclusively to this reporter, that "the epidemiological situation in the province of Las Tunas is stable and without dengue transmission," although isolated cases are reported.

Municipalities such as Jobabo, Manatí and the capital city mark the focality of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Therefore, control and environmental sanitation actions in work centers and residences are intensified during these days of the year.

Dengue - unlike other arboviruses that occur with their usual symptoms - has major complications with life risks. Therefore, to comply with the indications of the specialists, who insist on eliminating the potential breeding sites of the mosquito, and to support the antivectorial campaign in each place to be checked, is an imperative.

The months of March, April and May are decisive for the control and eradication of this vector, which also transmits diseases such as Zika and Chikungunya. Consequently, we will have a quieter year, if health is concerned.

Health indications point out that, to face the febrile symptoms, the citizen's duty is to go to the doctor. The intention is, from now on, preventing complex epidemiological situations in the summer season to preserve health and life.
