7-year-old girl dies of hemorrhagic dengue in Cuba

The girl Arlín Sailet Acuña Espinosa, a second-grade student at the José de la Luz y Caballero elementary school, in Contramaestre, Santiago de Cuba, died a victim of hemorrhagic dengue, the educational institution reported in a publication on its Facebook profile.

“A piece of news that we would never have wanted to give. Today we woke up to the sad news of the death of one of our second grade students, Arlín Sailet Acuña Espinosa. Please extend our deepest condolences to all your family and friends,” said the school, which later He deleted the publication, which was accompanied by a photo of the little girl.

However, in the Facebook group “Contramaestrenses por el mundo”, user Arnoldo Fernández shared a screenshot of the elementary school’s publication.

In that same post, Internet user Yanitza Infante, cousin of the deceased, commented: “Condolences to my family… I woke up with the sad news of the death of my little cousin Arlín Sailet Acuña Espinosa from hemorrhagic dengue. It is very sad and hard to see how a loved one of yours dies and even more so being so small”.

Although the official media do not report these deaths or indicate to what extent the situation is critical with the increase in cases of the disease transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, last week the death of another girl from hemorrhagic dengue in Cienfuegos forced the Hospital Paquito González Cueto University Pediatric Hospital in the main city of that province to defend himself from a multitude of criticisms on social networks.

The hospital described the complaints after the death of the girl as “manipulation of the facts”, which the Cuban influencer Yessy World identified as Paola Patricia Rodríguez, who according to her publication would have been admitted to the intensive care unit of that medical center for several days. .

Journalist Mario J. Pentón said in a direct interview that he spoke with the minor’s family about the event. “What is happening in Cienfuegos is deeply worrying, because the authorities are barely giving information, trying to placate people,” the reporter said.

In another complaint through a video on Facebook, mothers of patients at the Cienfuegos Pediatric also pointed out that there are “crowds of children with dengue due to the six-hour blackouts” and that “they do not put the split for energy savings.”

Also last week in Camagüey, a pregnant Cuban doctor died of hemorrhagic dengue, according to sources close to the victim. Facebook user Geisler González González identified the deceased only as Mercita, and revealed that the young woman was expecting a baby.

Until June 10, 3,036 cases of dengue had been reported throughout Cuba, but the months of greatest expansion of this disease are yet to come, the Cuban Minister of Public Health, José Ángel Portal Miranda, acknowledged on Thursday.

Portal Miranda also assured that in 2021 dengue “had no significant incidence, associated with the reduction in the movement of people and surveillance.”

With this, he contradicted himself: at the beginning of July, in another appearance before the government authorities, the minister said that at the end of June 2,768 cases had been confirmed, a figure that implied 591 fewer than those registered in the same period of 2021. to “make up” the problem the MINSAP, as it did in 2021 in the face of the health crisis caused by Covid-19?
