Peru Declares ‘Public Health Emergency’ as Dengue Cases Surge across Region

The South American nation of Peru has just declared a “public health emergency” due to a surge in dengue cases in multiple provinces across the country.

As Slay News reported, the deadly virus has been spreading throughout South America after millions of “gene-edited mosquitos” were released into the wild by a Bill Gates-funded program.

In Brazil, cases of dengue fever have soared 400% this year already.

According to Brazil’s health ministry, over 364,000 cases of dengue infection have been reported in the first five weeks of 2024 alone.

The figure is a staggering four times greater than the number of cases in the same period of 2023.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dengue can result in shock, internal bleeding, and even death.

The dramatic spike in dengue cases has prompted Brazil to purchase millions of doses of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-produced dengue vaccine.

The rapid spread of dengue has caused 40 confirmed deaths, the ministry said, and a further 265 are being investigated.

The virus has been rapidly spreading since the Bill Gates-funded United Nations’ World Mosquito Program released millions of genetically modified mosquitos into the wild.

In 2023, the UN’s World Mosquito Program announced a plan to release billions of gene-edited mosquitos in Brazil over a 10-year period.

The move is supposedly part of a plan to eradicate dengue fever in the country.

Now a year after the mosquito initiative began, dengue cases have risen sharply rather than fallen.

Peru declared a health emergency in most of its provinces on Monday due to a skyrocketing number of dengue cases.

According to the nation’s health ministry, the number of dengue cases registered during the first seven weeks of this year is twice as high as during the same period in 2023.

More than 31,000 cases have now been recorded.

“This is a grave problem,” health minister Cesar Vásquez said last week before the emergency was declared.

“And it is getting out of hand.”

The health emergency will enable the nation’s government to transfer funds faster to the affected regions and also transport doctors and nurses.

It will cover 20 of the country’s 24 provinces, including regions that surround the capital city of Lima.

A dengue epidemic last year put Peru’s public health system under strain as thousands sought care in emergency rooms.

The disease is spread by Aedys Egypti, a mosquito that reproduces in hot and humid conditions.

Although most dengue cases present light symptoms, the disease can cause severe headaches, fevers, and muscle pains.

The disease often becomes worse each time a person is infected, leading to “severe dengue,” which can be fatal.

Last year, a dengue epidemic in Peru killed 18 people.

However, in the first two months of this year alone, 32 Peruvians have already died from the virus.

In December, the UN’s “health” agency, the World Health Organization (WHO), said that Peru’s 2023 dengue epidemic was linked to rains and hot temperatures that helped mosquito populations to grow, especially in the north of the country.

However, the WHO failed to mention the UN’s Gates-funded GM mosquito program.

The World Mosquito Program received a $50 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is also bankrolling research into the dengue fever vaccine.

South American governments have purchased millions of doses of the Qdenga dengue fever vaccine.

Japanese drugmaker Takeda, the company that manufactured the vaccine, also received millions of dollars in grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In other words, Bill Gates’s money is funding all sides of the crisis.
