Sinaloa maintains preventive surveillance for measles


The secretary of health asked the society to remain calm because for 20 years there is no outbreak of the disease in Mexico

The measles outbreak is not a problem in Mexico, and for 20 years there have been no massive cases of patients suffering from this disease, but preventively the Ministry of Health in Sinaloa maintains epidemiological surveillance, detailed Efren Encinas Torres.

It recommended keeping the surveillance mainly in children from one to 6 years old, and the medical units are prepared with enough vaccines for the population that is considered more vulnerable, so the population should remain calm.

He exhorted people who are going to travel to a high-risk area like the USA to go to get vaccinated at least two weeks before leaving Mexico to avoid contagion.
