Abstract : ABSTRACT
Currently, health systems in the Americas region face two fundamental problems: the COVID-19 pandemic and dengue, mainly in countries where the last one is endemic, hence the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) emphasized the need to maintain efforts to prevent, detect, and treat vector-borne diseases during the COVID-19 pandemic since the combined impact of both could have severe consequences on the population at risk. It is argued that in the Americas there is no scientific evidence of cases of co-infection between dengue and COVID-19, so it is time to make efforts to reduce the mosquito population and avoid an increase in the occurrence of dengue cases to maintain or reduce the possibility of co-infection of these diseases. This article provides some integration of the measures used in the confrontation of COVID-19 with an impact on the surveillance and effective and timely control of Aedes aegypti, the main vector of dengue in Cuba.
