Cienfuegos, Cuba– In this central and southern province, concern continues over arbovirosis, an infectious disease transmitted by mosquitoes and any other type of vector, which can cause the disease, which is why surveillance is increasing.

During the last few days, isolated cases of the Oropouche virus were reported, according to samples analyzed at the Pedro Kouri Institute of Tropical Medicine, mainly in people with fever, weakness and headache.

Symptoms similar to epidemic outbreaks of dengue and the most shocking is the start date, so you should immediately go to the doctor, says Doctor Moisés Santos Peña, Specialist in Internal and Intensive Medicine and Advisor to the Management of the Gustavo Aldereguía Lima General Hospital.

“From the third to the fifth day, almost the sixth, are the most dangerous days of dengue and arbovirus, he comments, this is where dengue occurs, and progresses fatally. Patients can even die. Most dangerous day? the third day”.

According to what is also the Consulting Professor, from the third day onwards it is the most dangerous.

“It is the day to fall into a dangerous state of complications, he adds, from the third to the fifth, it is when the platelets begin to decrease in significant volume and bleeding may appear, it is where at a certain moment you are going to be so depressed.”

Warning signs at this time? Abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, frequent diarrhea, bleeding, lethargy or excitability.

Dr. Moisés adds that the first measure is to isolate the patient under a mosquito net and monitor him.
