100 daily patients affected by dengue enter hospital – LA TRIBUNA

The cases of children with the fatal dengue disease are alarming, as evidenced by the fact that in the pediatric ward of the Mario Catarino Rivas Hospital in San Pedro Sula, there are more than 100 small hospitalized patients every day.

The beds and cribs of the pediatric ward equipped to serve children with dengue are insufficient, as well as the medical staff.

The director of this room, Dr. Arlen Caballero, said that "we currently have an emergency due to dengue and our emergency services are overwhelmed by the amount of population that is coming."

He explained that "we have attention for dengue, diaries, more than 100 patients, plus the new income we are living in this emergency and all the feverish patients we are receiving in all those under 18 years."

Only in the dengue room that is enabled are 70 children hospitalized and in the emergency room an average of 40, he said.

According to the reports, of ten patients diagnosed with dengue, seven are minors.


Dr. Caballero was forceful in stating that this battle is won by eliminating the mosquito Aedes aegypti, transmitter of dengue, whose serious variety is fatal.

"You have to start eliminating breeding sites, because if there are no mosquitoes, there is no dengue," he said.

He went on to explain that the cleaning must "begin at our house, turn everything that can accumulate water and do community organization to eliminate once and for all mosquito breeding sites."

Caballero recommended that if you already have the first symptoms, such as fever, malaise, pain in the eyes and headache, you should go to the health center or hospital closest to your home.

He clarified that patients with these symptoms can not take anything, especially children, but also adults.

In addition, he recommended "not to trust us that it is a fever more, not to take any type of medication, except those that we have authorized by the medical personnel".

He insisted that this battle can be won if the community and the population "helps us and understands that it is not anything, but it is a real problem that is even leading to the death of many of our children".

Dr. Caballero called for eliminating mosquito breeding sites, having clean houses and at the first sign of fever and malaise, or vomiting in children, go to your nearest health center for medical attention.
