The State Government, through the Integrated Command and Control Center (CICC) for Arboviruses, composed of the Department of Health (Sesa), the State Coordination of Protection and Civil Defense (CEPDEC), the Military Fire Brigade of the State of Espírito Santo Santo (CBMES) and the Jones dos Santos Neves Institute (IJSN), launched this Tuesday (02) the Dengue Panel. The Panel is available on the website Mosquito, from Sesa, in the “Dengue Monitoring Panel” tab, with data on the disease available for all people in Espírito Santo, and will be updated daily, happening four times a day.

In this way, its development, carried out in partnership with the Institute of Information and Communication Technology of the State of Espírito Santo (Prodest), aims to inform the population about the distribution of the disease throughout the territory, with general data from the State, by municipalities and neighborhoods, in addition to raising awareness, strengthening and intensifying care to control the dengue vector, in this case, the mosquito Aedes aegypti.

The panel is fed by the Health Information System, e-SUS Health Surveillance (VS), through data released by health services and municipal surveillance in the notification and confirmation of dengue cases since 2022.

Its main interface has information about confirmed cases; confirmed deaths; and evolution of confirmed cases since 2022. By clicking on each rectangle, another screen is available with more detailed information, such as cases reported and confirmed by epidemiological weeks in each of the State’s 78 municipalities and neighborhoods, in addition to deaths under investigation and data by age group and gender. In the “evolution of cases” option, it is possible to compare the number of confirmed cases by epidemiological weeks in the last three years.

Another important piece of information is the map of Espírito Santo, located in the “confirmed cases” tab. The map changes tone, going from light orange (low incidence), to darker orange (medium incidence), until reaching brown (high incidence), according to the number of cases in the municipality, taking into account the incidence of cases confirmed in the last 28 days. The incidence of cases is an important variable for epidemiology and disease control, which counts the number of confirmed cases of dengue fever per 100 thousand inhabitants, in a given geographic space.

For this first moment, due to the scenario, with arbovirus being the most prevalent in the State, the Panel will have dengue data. Data on Zika and chikungunya continues to be released weekly through bulletins, on the website https://mosquito.saude.es.gov.br/boletins.

Importance for health

For the Under-Secretary of State for Health Surveillance, from the Department of Health, Orlei Cardoso, the data presented in the Panel will be able to help the population take greater care in terms of controlling the vector and also related to their own health.

“Once the availability of data by municipalities and also by neighborhoods, they will be able to provide the population with a better dimension of the mosquito scenario in their region. Knowing that it is in an area of ​​high incidence and with many confirmed cases, the objective is to raise awareness and strengthen the message to the population so that they intensify vector control, with cleaning to eliminate breeding sites in their homes, and as a consequence reduce the number of cases of the disease”, informed the undersecretary.

Care, as explained by Orlei Cardoso, is also linked to keeping society safe, as in addition to the actions of public authorities, having control of the mosquito population, there is a reduction in cases of the disease and health risks.

“The Dengue Panel adds to a series of State Government initiatives to combat diseases caused by Aedes aegyptisuch as the training of fire department agents, who are working to support municipalities in areas of highest incidence, the distribution of equipment for applying insecticides, the release of resources, training of professionals in clinical management, among others”, he pointed out Cardoso.

Detailed view of the epidemiological panorama of dengue

The Panel aims to gather comprehensive and updated data on dengue, providing a detailed view of the epidemiological panorama in Espírito Santo from 2022 to date.

From the main page, with data on confirmed cases, deaths and the evolution of cases, new pages are available with more detailed information, where the population can consult confirmed cases by cities and neighborhoods, according to the selected year; have access to the incidence of cases, as well as the profile of confirmed deaths; and the possibility of checking the evolution of confirmed dengue cases by epidemiological weeks over the last three years. On this case evolution page, notification and confirmation data are the sum of the years of comparison.

The sectoral director of Studies and Research, at the Jones dos Santos Neves Institute (IJSN), Pablo Jabor, talked about the creation process. “We brought together expertise from all sectors involved to develop the Panel. We already had the experience of Covid-19, and we needed to structure the information, so that the entire society has access and can understand it easily and quickly. This is how the Dengue Panel was born”, said the director.

For Jabor, one of the team’s priorities was to be able to bring data from neighborhoods, as an important source of information to be accessed by the population. “The team planned the Panel’s architecture, with the possibility of being guided by cases in the municipalities and also by their neighborhoods”, he explained.
