It detailed that there was a 15 per cent increase in cases, but indicated that these were the expected figures, so so far there had been no outbreak that was alarming. “There is this 15 percent increase in gastrointestinal infections in the population, but it is the estimated increase by the Ministry of Health. There has not been an outbreak that we might consider alarming, we are simply on epidemiological surveillance and in this way we are on the side of avoiding any strong outbreaks.” Preciado Machado explained that the disease is contagious, but not highly, plus there are many ways to prevent it, in which some measures that are applied against Covid-19 have helped. “It can spread, but it is not extremely contagious like other diseases, but it can also be avoided with constant hand washing, not eating on the street, not exposing yourself to extreme temperatures, having a healthy diet and maintaining good hydration, that can help prevent rotavirus contagion.” The doctor noted that any gastrointestinal or diarrhoeal problems can have complications and reach dehydration, especially in the vulnerable population.
