Of these 717 cases, 499 have been identified as non-severe Dengue, 173 with warning signs and 45 classified as serious cases and unlike the previous year, in 2023 one death was recorded.

Faced with the significant increase in confirmed cases, the state Secretary of Health, Zazil Flores Aldape, reported that prevention measures have been reinforced by carrying out fumigations. However, he stressed the importance of raising awareness among citizens, urging them to avoid the proliferation of mosquito breeding sites in their homes.

To do this, he recommended avoiding the accumulation of water in patios, eliminating weeds from the gardens and, if there is stored water, keeping it covered. Likewise, he highlighted the importance of keeping storage containers and drains clean, since these places encourage the reproduction of the dengue-transmitting mosquito.

In addition, the health minister called on the population to contribute to cleaning yards and go to consultations in the presence of symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, muscle or joint pain, eye pain, headache or fever.

In relation to respiratory diseases that affected the region, a total of 733 suspected cases of influenza were reported. Of this set, 33 cases have been confirmed as positive. Unfortunately, the death of one person as a result of this disease was reported. In comparison, during the year 2022, 2,958 suspected cases of influenza were registered, of which 81 were positive.

Regarding COVID-19 cases, 6,904 suspected cases were reported, of which 348 were confirmed as positive. 27 deaths related to this disease have been recorded.

Considering the winter season, health authorities have emphasized to the population, especially parents, urging them to take advantage of the availability of vaccines to protect the vulnerable community. Zazil Flores Aldape reiterated that vaccines are essential for specific groups, such as people aged 60 and over, children over six months and under five years, health personnel, pregnant women and those with comorbidities such as immunosuppression, kidney failure, diabetes and cancer. .

For this reason, he called for them to go to their health unit and complete the different vaccination schedules, as well as go to the medical units if they experience any symptoms. Likewise, he highlighted the importance of maintaining basic hygiene measures, such as regular hand washing, the use of face masks when showing respiratory symptoms, and the proper use of masks for older adults in crowded places.

They call on citizens to prevent the proliferation of mosquito breeding sites.

only 3 cases right now in all BCS reported. so being this late I do not see how it will explode this season. and lapaz and cabo just started spraying.

seems from google translate they gave up on LaPaz with the wolbachia . I had noted from the get go why it may not work in baja , basically we are a desert. So I think they finally realized this and decided they did not want a failure under their program as it would damage their reputation.

claims 2 cases in BCS and erroniously claims the Walbachia is the reason but it is only in LaPaz.  and possibly only a small part of LaPaz.

with hurricane olaf we had locally here in LV horizontal rains that can leave puddles where normally we do not have standing water and shaded and a lot of it.

second to that our drying out winds have not been here so we can expect a bumper crop of mosquitos.

The good news denguewise is so far no major outbreaks of dengue have occurred in cabo or lapaz. It is a bit late in the season so we should be ok for a massive outbreak. Added in we would find out if the release of the Wolbachia infected in LaPaz have an effect. Also there may be less travel by people to the mainland infected areas because of covid, people may not be flying around as much from cabo or LaPaz to mainland.
