Motofog – The Municipality of Uberaba, through the Municipal Health Secretariat / Department of Zoonoses and Endemics Control, is carrying out nebulization with motofogs this week, until the 9th, to combat Aedes aegypti, a transmitter of diseases such as dengue, zika and chikungunya . The time for nebulizations is from 5 am to 7 am and from 5 pm to 10 pm. The Valim de Melo neighborhood receives fogging in the morning and the Lourdes neighborhood, in the afternoon, until this Friday.

In the afternoon, on the 8th and 9th, the works continue at Parque São Geraldo and on the 7th, in Ponte Alta. The Department of Control of Zoonoses and Endemics reinforces that the nebulization acts on the adult mosquito – transmitter of dengue, zika virus, chikungunya – and that it is important for the population to be attentive and open doors and windows so that the insecticide has more reach.
