HEALTH

Sanitary Surveillance – The actions begin the week before Carnival and continue during the party: sanitary educational activities and preventive inspections. Among them, sanitary inspection at clubs, formal trade of food (snack bars, restaurants), municipal heath unities and pharmacies located around the Carnival centers, hotels, motels and inns, prioritizing places where there are more tourists.

Besides, informal trade of food will be trained (kiosks). Inspections will be made at health centers set for the event and cabins installed at Galo da Madrugada, in order to verify the sanitary condition of these places, as well as the quality of food and health services provided.

Strategic Information Center for Health Surveillance – The Strategic Information Center for Health Surveillance (Cievs) will be on duty 24h during Carnival, to monitor and investigate cases that interest public health. Teams will check out cases of food poisoning and suspect of meningitis, measles and diseases transmitted by insects, among others immediately notified.

Prevention of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (DST/Aids) – People might get tested for HIV at centers of Arsenal and Ibura, from 6pm to midnight. Arsenal center will operate from Friday (24th) to Tuesday (28th). Ibura center will operate from Monday (27th) to Wednesday (1st), when tests will be made during the event “Ashes fo Diversity”. The estimate is to test 50 revelers per night in each center, with anti-HIV tests. Results are available within 30 minutes and delivered to the user individually, with professional counselling. Per night, 26 professionals will be working together with damage-reduction agents for the prevention of alcohol and other drugs, so revelers are informed about the importance of condoms. The expectation is to distribute 800,000 men condoms, 15,000 women condoms and 15,000 unities of gel.

Fighting Aedes aegypti – The battle against Aedes aegypti will be reinforced during Carnival. The actions to fight against the insect that transmits dengue, chikungunya and zika begin two weeks before Carnival and remain until the last day of party, non-stop in several areas of the city, especially in strategic places.

Because of more inspections, the Integrated Terminal of Passengers (TIP), airport, metro, hotels on Boa Viagem Avenue and places full of people, such as Recife Antigo and other areas of downtown, will be inspected by two teams of agents of environmental healthy and endemic control (asaces). Besides, public markets, street markets and Galo da Madrugada will have intensified inspections.

These places will receive agents to eliminate possible breeding sites, with local treatment (biological larvicide), mechanical aspiration of the insect and chemical insecticide in risk areas. Besides, there will be collection of tires and cleaning groups in partnership with The Bureau of Maintenance and Urban Cleaning (Emlurb). The Center of Environmental Surveillance (CVA) will provide teams on duty to controle zoonosis and possible emergencies, control of rodents, scorpions and others.

Mental Health, Alcohol and other Drugs – The Bureau of Mental Health, Alcohol and other Drugs will provide strategies from the Policy of Damage Reduction in the Consumption of Alcohol, Cigarette and other Drugs during Carnival, with information and distribution of inputs to revelers.

Yellow fever
– Recife City Hall has intensified education and prevention measures against yellow fever. Together, 500 professionals at municipal unities with emergencies, including polyclinics and thePediatric Hospital Helena Moura, have started a training to identify cases of the disease, as well as to immediately notify them to the Strategic Information Center for Health Surveillance (Cievs). It will work 24 hours during Carnival, in order to guarantee moniroting and investigation of cases.

Control Measures – Measures to control mosquito Aedes aegypti will be reinforced a week before the party. Places with many people will have priority to fight against the insect that transmits dengue,chikungunya and zika. One measure is at Galo da Madrugada, where Environmental Surveillance will use a special smoke to eliminate mosquitos. The work of agents of environmental healthy and endemic control (asaces) will be done also in Recife Neighborhood, main place of Recife City Carnival. The Port of Recife is located in this region, where tourists enter the city. Therefore, this place, as well as airport and Integrated Terminal of Passengers are considered strategic places, receiving education and control actions. Bilingual leaflets will be distributed to inform revelers about the disease.

Yellow fever is a short-term acute infectious disease (maximum of 12 days), variable severity and caused by a virus transmitted by vectors. The severe form presents: liver and kidneys failure and even death. Initial symptoms of yellow fever are: sudden fever, chill, headache, backache, pain all over the body, nausea and vomit, fatigue and physical weakness.

There is no specific treatment for the disease. The patient must rest, taking liquids and even blood when necessary. If first symptoms appear, go to the closest health center and inform about any trip to risk areas within the previous 15 days. The disease is not contagious, therefore there is no person-to-person transmission. It is only transmitted by the bite of mosquitos infected with the virus.
