Cinco personas han fallecido por un brote de Chagas agudo en el estado Táchira, Venezuela, zona limítrofe con Colombia.

Mal de Chagas

El chinche picuda, conocido como pito o vinchuca, es el vector encargado de transmitir el parásito trypanosoma cruzi, causante de la enfermedad de Chagas.


Las alarmas sanitarias se dispararon este domingo a causa de un nuevo brote epidemiológico en Venezuela. Se trata del mal de Chagas, una enfermedad transmitida por insectos, que ha matado a cinco personas en Puerto Nuevo, estado Táchira, Venezuela. Entre los fallecidos figuran cuatro adultos y un pequeño de once meses de edad.

Aparte de los cinco casos fatales, otras 40 personas se encuentran en observación pues presentan los síntomas de la enfermedad: fiebre, dolor de cabeza y abdomen hinchado.Un niño de tres años tuvo que ser intervenido del corazón a causa de los fluidos que produce el mal de Chagas. 

La gobernadora del estado de Táchira, Laidy Gómez, manifestó que se “activó un plan de atención entre todos los entes de salud, protección civil y seguridad” para proteger y atender a la comunidad de Puerto Nuevo. 

Las autoridades sanitarias creen que los pacientes contrajeron la enfermedad por vía oral, a través de alimentos contaminados con las heces de un chinche picuda, insecto que transmite el mal de Chagas.    

Igualmente, el viceministro de Salud y el director Nacional de Epidemiología de Venezuela le pidieron a la comunidad conservar la calma, puesto que el mal de Chagas, según ellos, no es contagioso y las autoridades competentes están buscando el origen de la enfermedad para erradicarlo.

      I had quit the JW Open Club, so as not to be a cause for dissension …. which if I am not careful I can take over a conversation … as TTH ALLUDED to that, and he was correct.
      Under the circumstances, I feel if I do not comment, it would solve at least 3 points of concern.
      I have been thinking about this for several days and decided it would be appropriate to “belong” if I only commented if asked a question, etc.,and not post cartoons.
      Basically, the same rules at the Kingdom Hall, except I will be courteous to anyone that is courteous to me, except that for d’fd people, not to discuss any theocratic issue or “what’s going on”, etc., realizing it is a double edged sword that should cut both ways.
      With all that in mind, I again request approval to join the closed club mainly as an observer.
      The open club has evolved into a bat cave of crazy people.

      Hi, it seems we are the only two left talking about it as the rest have lost interest.  PITY, because they will soon see what is coming. I have always had a good imagination for understanding injustice. ..I watched the video about the injustice you put up.... very sad. We understand those things.....the other video is just a parody, of snippets of a very nasty person.... I do not know who she is but she was standing  next to the health minister.....
      I am not well, so I may not make it thru this system..... and I am happy to say maybe it is a  good thing.... I want to praise jehovah until I die ...but the opportunities are getting less.... and who wants to see people suffer?  If I were still around I would be severely stressed by it.  
      My father always said " know all, blow all" when people think they know it all.  And I have seen some pretty opinionated people on here. Mostly people who have had very little suffering and had authority in congregations.   
      I encourage you to stay strong dear sister and please devote more time to worship Jehovah in love. I also want to cut my time on internet ........ I spend time trying to find hidden  news about new developments in UN etc.  Soon all news about what is really  going on will not be available..... just mandates from governments and propaganda from the governments. People will be liquidated and we will not be able to get news about it. 
      Just stay strong. I am glad you spoke out about Australia.... I have a friend there who is too afraid to talk on internet.  They have already built  Covid "camps" in USA and Australia.... the  ĺorcing all "faith in god" out of everyone..  only worship of the state will be allowed. .... to compromise as many as he can.
      Strengthen yourself. No one can do it for you.
