Contributions Made by Sergio Cortes as a Medical Executive

Recently, Sergio Cortes, the Brazilian State secretary of Health, was in Xerem. He surveyed the areas affected by floods. The government established the Dengue Hydration Center at the Xerem health center. The establishment can serve a number of 300 people per day. The center was set up as a preventive measure against the dengue Mosquito proliferation. These steps were taken to mitigate the situation in the shelters. During a meeting with Camilo Junqueira, the municipal health secretary and the coordinator of the National Health Force Conception, it was decided that the state would send another calamity kit and an extra 3,000 tablets of antibiotics to curb Leptospirosis.
The department of health has taken the necessary measures to prevent the spread of the disease, which can be passed from one person to another via contaminated water, diarrhea, leptospirosis and hepatitis A. Others contract it after a heavy rainfall, meningitis and chicken pox. Initially, the samples that had been collected by the Health Surveillance Secretariat of state were deemed unsatisfactory. This has forced the team to disinfect the water on a daily basis and the government has provided ten thousand bottles of sodium hypochlorite. People in shelters are urged to use bottled water for cooking and drinking. This information was originally reported on Extraglobo.
Sergio Cortes has a number of medical journals that he posted on his website. Recently, he put up an article about how to bear the high temperatures associated with summer. The high summer temperature causes the body to sweat more than usual. The increased sweating can be a source of embarrassment especially for people who perspire a lot. Such people are unable to raise their arms because of the wet patch that might be seen on their armpits or the stench that is usually associated with the sweat.
Sergio says that by choosing the correct clothes people can avoid excessive sweating. He further posits that bacteria that proliferate quickly during high temperatures and the humidity on the skin cause the odor. In order to prevent excessive sweating, Sergio says that people should wear loose fitting clothes that allow the skin to breath. Additionally, people should choose clothes that are light in color because dark colored clothes absorb as well as retain heat and humidity. Another important factor to consider is the fabric of the cloth. Natural fibers like linen, satin, cotton, silk and viscose allow the skin to breathe freely.
