Dengue, Bassetti: “In Brazil it is galloping, alerts on mobile phones for returning travelers”


Dengue cases in Brazil “are galloping, even very quickly”, and “I believe it is important to do two things: those who travel to Brazil and have already had Dengue should proceed with vaccination, because at the moment the disease is highly endemic throughout South America.” The invitation comes from Matteo Bassettidirector of infectious diseases at the San Martino polyclinic hospital in Genoa, speaking on the Dengue alarm that is spreading in Brazil and not only causing concern on the continent.

Bassetti: “In the future rapid tests for all respiratory viruses such as Covid”


“And then – says Bassetti – it is necessary to inform those returning from Brazil that, if there are symptoms compatible with Dengue, they must notify their doctor to take the test: this can be done with alerts or messages on the mobile phone to those who are traveling and returns to Italy – also through flight triangulations – so as to intercept possible cases. Because in a country like ours, which has already had endemic cases, there could be many other indigenous infections. We need a prevention and communication effort, but it seems to me that there is little information even in the media.” NNNN
