The above, according to a publication by Karen Zamora-Ceritos, of the Health Research Coordination, in Gaceta Hidalguense de Investigación en Salud / vol. 6, No. 2, April-June 2018, where it stated: “It should be noted that the presence of the vector (Anopheles mosquitoes) and the migratory movement of the population make it necessary to maintain sanitary prevention and enhance activities in these areas of the state.
While other states such as Nayarit, Tabasco and Quintana Roo have not had reports in the past three years either, but they remain residual transmission sources. Four more – Campeche, Chiapas, Chihuahua and Sinaloa – are providing active broadcasts, as reported yesterday on the UNAM website.
