Santa Cruz, Bolivia –
Mario Ortiz Suárez Children’s Hospital Vice President Dr. Liliana Brun informed RED UNO of a worrisome Coqueluche outbreak that has affected several minors, including a 28-day-old baby in the intensive care unit. This little guy is from Camille. In addition, health authorities are awaiting the results of other suspected cases.
The medical team of the Children’s Hospital strictly implemented prevention and control measures to prevent the spread of the epidemic. Health authorities are monitoring suspected cases in the hope that the results of a confirmatory test will lead to early effective interventions to prevent new infections.
Brun urged the public, especially parents, to be aware of knocking symptoms and to go to a medical center immediately if they notice signs of illness. He noted that timely vaccination and adherence to immunization schedules are critical to protecting children from this potentially serious disease.
Whooping cough, also known as whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory infection that is especially dangerous for infants and young children. Initial symptoms are similar to those of the common cold, but can develop into severe coughing, shortness of breath and the risk of life-threatening complications.
According to the Department of Health (headquarters), 89 active cases have been registered in the region, with 17 hospitalized patients, five of them in intensive care. At the national level, the Ministry of Health reported that as of last week, cumulative cases had surpassed 450, mostly in Beni and Santa Cruz.
