The death of a man in Brusk on suspicion of contracting dengue fever is being investigated. According to the Minister of Health, Osvaldo Quirino de Souza, This is an 81-year-old man, who tested positive for the disease before he died last Saturday, age 26. According to the secretary, he had comorbidities, with a history of stroke and heart problems.
“He had a low platelet count, but we still don’t have confirmation that he had a hemorrhagic organ hemorrhage. He had a lot of bruises and bruises all over his body, and we don’t know if it was dengue hemorrhagic fever. It remains to be seen which subtype it hit.” The test takes place at Lacen-SC [Laboratório Central de Saúde Pública]’, he explains.
The patient was hospitalized the previous Friday, 25. So the speed to death is also a factor that justifies the investigation. According to the file, the city is awaiting state results, so it is still not possible to say whether the death was from dengue fever or not.
If so, it could be dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue fever. Health Surveillance director Ariane Fischer believes that if she tested positive for dengue, she might be for the classic, due to the speed of death.
According to the Directorate of Epidemiological Surveillance (Dive-SC), 10 deaths have been reported in the state, of which four have already been confirmed due to dengue and six are under investigation by municipal health departments, with support from the state health department. .
The four confirmed dengue deaths in 2022 were in the municipalities of Criciúma (an imported case), Seara, Itá and Romelândia (the original three). The six cases under investigation occurred in the municipalities of Chapeco, and two in the city of Ascora, Prosque, Ceará and Palmetos.
