In the South American country, there has been an increase in cases and deaths from this disease, reaching 203 people who died between confirmed and suspected.

This figure "is concentrated in Piura with 64, Lambayeque with 47 and Ica with 35 and in the group of people over 65 years of age," the agency explained on the social network Twitter.

The day before, the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) reported that, in the first five months of the year, more than 37,000 girls, boys and adolescents contracted dengue in Peru and 24 died, based on information from the National Center for Epidemiology, Prevention and Disease Control of the Ministry of Health.

Likewise, this organization warned in a statement that the dengue problem "continues latent" and that concern is growing among families, both in the north of the country where there are more affected, as well as in the Amazon and Lima regions, where there is a "considerable increase" of cases.

On the other hand, the Special Commission for follow-up to emergencies and management of disaster risks Covid-19 approved, this Monday, unanimously, to propose a motion that urges the Executive Branch to declare a state of emergency due to the outbreak of dengue in the country by agreement of the Council of Ministers.

Dengue is a viral disease transmitted mainly by Aedes aegypti. When the mosquito feeds on the blood of an infected person, it acquires it and after eight to 12 days it can transfer it to a healthy individual through the bite.

It can bring symptoms such as fever, pain behind the eyes, muscle pain and joint pain; nausea and vomiting; intense tiredness; appearance of spots on the skin and/or bleeding from the nose and gums.
