Apart from the suspected case of monkeypox in the Gard, which fortunately is not confirmed this evening by the ARS, a case of dengue fever was detected a few days ago in Nîmes. Information communicated by the Departmental Regional Health Agency (ARS) to all the local press this Wednesday.

After carrying out a survey in different districts of Nîmes, the Regional Health Agency confirms that a case of dengue fever following a trip abroad has been confirmed in Nîmes. The objective now is to cut the chains of transmission and prevent tiger mosquitoes from infecting other people.

“We are going to set up a mosquito control operation overnight from Thursday to Friday”, says Claude Rols, the departmental director of the ARS contacted by our editorial staff. An operation planned in the Kennedy sector in Nîmes; precisely from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. “Even if the risk of contamination is quite low. We have already adopted these same methods for other cases in Nîmes in recent years with very convincing results. » According to our information, the person infected with dengue fever is not currently hospitalized. But the ARS does not confirm whether she still resides at her home in Nîmes.
