The Directorate General of Health (DGS) announced Wednesday that 14 cases of elmorrhagia were reported from the beginning of the month, of which 10 were confirmed by the National Health Institute of Dr. Ricardo Jorge.
All the cases were in the river Lisbon and Tagus. There are two separate appearances, "both of them are imported from European countries," said the DGS in a statement.
So far, in every case, adult concerns have been detected, one of them is in the hospital and clinically stable.
This is, for the time being, a lesser occurrence than this happened in February this year. From that period to June, 112 cases were confirmed, of which 107 were living in the North, in Central Two and in the three regions of Lisbon and Tagus.
The appearance of the beginning of the year was not a feature of a classic appearance. Emergency-affected population has been vaccinated and therefore the disease "has changed, it is very slight, almost zero transmission risk," said Hospital Director General, Graça Freitas, PUBLIC's interview in August.
In April of 2017, at the age of 17, the death of a young woman, following lateral pneumonia, was in the early years of elmorrhagia. Nerea was not vaccinated.
The illness, which was almost eliminated in Portugal in 1994, and the elimination of the World Health Organization (WHO) in the summer of 2016 has now appeared in Europe for parents not considering the child's vaccination. There are also "necessary movements", according to Graça Freitas, one of the European countries with the highest dose of vaccine with two doses.
However, the death of elmorrhagia has once again become more infectious diseases, once again opening the vaccine topic. At that time, the Director General of Health, Francisco George, called on the people who trusted in science.
Among the critics who are not allowed to vaccinate amongst children, Mário Cordeiro is a pediatrician who refuses to lie with careless parents of children who are not children, considering the consequences of their actions.
Symptoms of measles
When describing the symptomatology of the disease, the DGS transmits an allergic virus, infectious drops or airborne infections, cough or horrified by the infected person. Patients are infectious for less than 4 days until four days after the eruption.
Symptoms usually appear between 10 and 12 days when people are infected and usually when the fever begins, the rash (head and trunk and lower end progresses), cough, conjunctivitis and runny nose.
The Directorate General of Health advises the vaccine to travel or participate in international events. The vaccine is free and is included in the National Health Service's National Vaccine Program.
