Among the most common dengue symptoms are headache, muscle, bone, and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, retro-ocular pain (behind the eyes), and rash.

In the case of Zika and Chikungunya, they have circulated in less, registering 120 cases of Zika and 49 of Chikungunya for this year (to October 31).

The Ministry of Health reiterates the call to the population not to lower their guard and continue with the elimination of mosquito breeding sites such as tires, buckets, vases, canoes, jars, among others, as well as collaborating with our officials when they visit their homes for fumigation, presenting proper identification.

In addition, it is important to remember measures such as applying mosquito repellent to exposed skin, using long sleeves, and long pants, where necessary and using mosquito nets.
