St. Lucian Health Authorities Warn Against Outbreak of Dengue Fever

first_img“Four stereotypes of dengue exist. However, persons receive lifelong immunity against a serotype once infected with it. Only serotypes two and three have been recorded to date in St. Lucia, with the majority of the cases being children.” While it gave no figures, the Ministry said most of the reported cases are concentrated in the northern, central and eastern parts of the island. CMC It said persons with mild dengue may present with fever, accompanied by rash, nausea/vomiting, pain behind the eye, muscle and joint pain. In its more severe form, persons may progress to bleeding from the gums or nose, vomiting blood and passing blood in the stool. The Ministry of Health and Wellness said that dengue fever is one of the most common vector-borne viral illnesses affecting humans, transmitted through the bite of the female Aedes aegypti mosquito, and to a lesser extent the Aedes albopictus. “Very often, what we find is one household doing all that it can by taking preventative measures, but two households away, nobody cares. Mosquitoes have a very long flight range, they can travel up to a mile depending on the wind direction and wind speed, so that means to establish a safe zone preventative measures need to be taken within a mile-wide perimeter of one’s household,” he said. Ragnanan said it is necessary for the community to work together to prevent local transmission of dengue fever and that persons should avoid the indiscriminate dumping of garbage, which also serves as breeding ground for the mosquito. The Ministry of Health and Wellness said dengue viral disease has an incubation period of four to 10 days after the bite from an infected mosquito. Chief Environmental Health Officer, Parker Ragnanan, said intervention measures being undertaken by the Environmental Health Division include lava siding and fogging and that householders and property owners are encouraged to inspect their properties at least twice a week in an effort to contain the Aedes aegypti mosquito population. St. Lucian Health authorities on Monday warned the population to take all precautionary steps to prevent the spread of the dengue fever, given the rapid onset of the rainy season. Earlier this month, the Ministry of Health and Wellness reported a “significant increase in dengue cases on island,” and that there is continued local transmission which often peaks during and after rainy seasons.last_img read more

490 Donegal seniors benefit from personal alarms

first_imgEarlier this week, the Department of Rural and Community Development allocated €2.3 million for the renewed Seniors Alert Scheme, which comes into effect on November 1st.490 local seniors in the county have availed of the service since 2015, with the scheme due to be extended to even more people.All users have a base unit installed in their home which is connected to a national Seniors Alert Scheme helpline using landline or mobile telecommunications. When the user activates the personalised alarm it puts a call through to the national call centre which is open 24/7/365. The call centre operator talks to the person in their home and decides whether to alert a local volunteer responder or, in potentially serious circumstances, the emergency services. Another technological development was launched this week:  Advanced Mobile Location (AML) works by automatically finding a phone’s GPS co-ordinates when a 112 or 999 number is dialled. The co-ordinates are immediately passed to the emergency services in responding and dispatching emergency personnel to callers in need across Ireland.Minister Ring said: “This new technology will have a major impact on people’s lives, particularly in rural areas.“It will help if someone crashes or witnesses a crash on a remote rural road but does not know their location; or if someone gets lost or hurt while out walking or hiking. It will lead to quicker response times and potentially save lives.Minister Joe McHugh is encouraging everyone who is eligible to avail of the scheme, and has given praise to the local community groups who are supporting this service.
