ABSTRACT

Paraguay habilitó albergues sanitarios para que guarden cuarentena las personas venidas del exterior, como medida para evitar la propagación de casos de COVI-19. El objetivo fue describir las características epidemiológicas de los casos de COVID-19 diagnosticados en los albergues sanitarios en el Gran Asunción desde el 7 de marzo al 30 de setiembre. Estudio descriptivo, transversal, temporalmente retrospectivo. El muestreo fue no probabilístico de casos consecutivos. Las variables de los casos confirmados fueron, sexo, edad y distritos. Fueron utilizados datos de acceso abierto del Ministerio de Salud Pública y Bienestar Social. Para análisis estadístico de las variables fueron incluidas frecuencias, expresadas como porcentajes, para lo cual fue utilizado el programa Excel. Se diagnosticaron 390 casos en el Gran Asunción. El mayor número de casos se registró en agosto (118 casos). El 69,2% (270) de los casos en el Gran Asunción fue del sexo masculino, relación hombre/mujer de 2,3. El 34,9% (136) tenía edades entre 20 a 29 años, (promedio 33.8±16,14, IC95% 2,2- 65,5). El 80% (310) del total se presentó en menores de 50 años. Las ciudades con mayor cantidad de casos fueron Asunción (46,2%, 180) y los Distritos de Luque (8,7%, 34); Ñemby (6,4%, 25) y Capiatá (5,1%,20). Las características epidemiológicas presentadas son las esperadas, dado el perfil sociodemográfico de estas ciudades


Paraguay opened sanitary shelters to quarantine people arriving from abroad, as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 cases. The objective was to describe the epidemiological characteristics of COVID-19 cases diagnosed in sanitary shelters in Greater Asunción from March 7 to September 30. It was a descriptive, cross-sectional, temporally retrospective study, with non - probabilistic sampling of consecutive cases. The variables of confirmed cases in quarantine facilities were sex, age and departments. Open access data from the Ministry of Public Health and Social Welfare were used. For statistical analysis of the variables, frequencies, expressed as percentages, were included and the Excel program was used for it. Three hundred and ninety cases were diagnosed in Greater Asunción. The highest number of cases was in August (118 cases), 69.2% (270) of the cases in Greater Asunción were male, with a male/female ratio of 2.3, 34.9% (136) ranged from 20 to 29 years old, (mean 33.8 ±16.14, 95% CI 2.2-65.5). Eighty percent (310) of the cases occurred in the population under 50 years of age. The locations that presented the highest number of cases were Asunción (46.2%, 180) and the Districts of Luque (8.7%, 34); Ñemby (6.4%, 25) and Capiatá (5.1%, 20). The epidemiological characteristics presented were expected given the socio demographic profile of these cities

ABSTRACT

Los migrantes son más susceptibles a las enfermedades infecciosas, por las malas condiciones sanitarias donde viven. El objetivo fue describir las condiciones sanitarias del albergue "COPACO" del Bañado Norte en el 2018. Estudio descriptivo, transversal y temporalmente prospectivo. Fueron georreferenciados, ubicación y cantidad de grifos, sanitarios, desechos no biológicos, y medidas las distancias entre el agua potable y los desechos. Se evaluó el acceso y calidad del agua potable almacenada y fueron encuestadas las familias para conocer las enfermedades más prevalentes. Las referencias fueron las establecidas en el Manual ESFERA. Fueron contabilizadas 481 familias (2,405 personas); censados 22 baños químicos, 25 grifos, 5 puestos de ducha y 4 puntos de acumulación de desechos. El rango de distancia entre los baños y los 4 grifos más cercanos fue de 1 a 78 m, promedio 28 m. La distancia promedio entre el acúmulo de basura y los 4 grifos más cercanos fue de 21,1 m, rango 1 a 35 m. Cada grifo fue utilizado por 96 personas, 60% (9) de las familias almacenaban agua. Un baño móvil, con retrete y sin ducha era utilizado por 109 personas. Los baños eran unisex (mixtos) y carecían de fuente de agua y se improvisaron 5 puestos para ducharse, de utilización familiar. Fueron encuestadas 15 familias (3,1%). El promedio de estadía 33,3 días, 3 familias acusaron padecer de vómito, fiebre, diarrea y dolor dental. Los resultados pueden orientar a las autoridades sobre las futuras acciones a realizar para salvaguardar la salud de la población migrante


Migrants are more susceptible to infectious diseases, due to the poor sanitary conditions they live in. The objective of this work was to describe the sanitary conditions of the "COPACO" shelter in Bañado Norte (North Slum) in 2018. This was a descriptive, cross-sectional and temporally prospective study. The location and quantity of taps, toilets, non-biological waste were georeferenced, and the distances between drinking water and garbage were measured. Access and quality of stored drinking water were evaluated and families were surveyed to find out the most prevalent diseases. The references were those established in the SPHERE handbook. The number of families counted were 481 (2,405 people), 22 chemical toilets, 25 taps, 5 shower stalls and 4 garbage accumulation points were registered. The distance range between the toilets and the 4 closest taps was 1 to 78 m, average 28 m. The average distance between the garbage accumulation points and the 4 closest taps was 21.1 m, the range was 1 to 35 m. Each tap was used by 96 people, while 60% (9) of the families store water. A portable bathroom, with a toilet and without a shower, was used by 109 people. The bathrooms were unisex (mixed) and lacked a water source and 5 stalls were improvised for showering, for family use. Fifteen families were surveyed (3.1%). The average stay in the facilities was 33.3 days, and 3 families reported suffering from vomiting, fever, diarrhea and dental pain. The results can guide authorities on future actions to be taken to safeguard the health of the migrant population

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: The baby motor development happens naturally with the complex interaction of the body, performing tasks in its context. When the body suffers negative external influence, such as the use of drugs by the mother during pregnancy, and develops in an environment different from home, such as shelters, it is questionable how the motor development would be. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the motor development of babies living in welfare shelters, children of crack users during pregnancy; to verify if there is an association of motor delay in these babies; and to describe the environment in which they were inserted. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study, with a convenience sample. There were 29 babies between three and 16 months old. Twenty-two of them were exposed to crack during pregnancy (Crack Group) and the remaining seven were not (Non-Crack Group). All were living in a specific shelter. To assess broad motor development, the Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS) was used. The Affordances in the Home Environment for Motor Development - Infant Scale (AHEMD-IS) was used to assess home environment opportunities. RESULTS: In the crack group, the developmental delay was confirmed in 36.4% cases and suspected in 18.2%. Most babies in the crack group were typical (45.5%). There was no statistically significant association between crack group and developmental delay, nor with age and sex. CONCLUSION: The development of babies in the crack group was similar to the non-crack group and the opportunities in the environment were reasonable for the baby development.


INTRODUÇÃO: O desenvolvimento motor do bebê acontece naturalmente com interação complexa do seu corpo, realizando tarefas em seu contexto. Quando este corpo sofre algum tipo de influência externa negativa, como o uso de drogas durante a gestação da sua mãe e ele se desenvolve em um ambiente diferente de sua casa, como em abrigos, questiona-se como está esse desenvolvimento motor. OBJETIVO: Avaliar o desenvolvimento motor de bebês moradores de abrigos assistenciais, filhos de usuárias de crack durante a gestação, verificar se existe associação de atraso motor nestes bebês, bem como, descrever o ambiente em que estavam inseridos. MÉTODOS: Trata-se de um estudo transversal, com amostra por conveniência. Foram 29 bebês entre três e 16 meses. Eram 22 filhos de usuárias de crack durante a gestação (Grupo Crack) e sete cujas mães não fizeram uso da droga (Grupo Não-Crack), todos moradores de um abrigo específico. Para avaliar o desenvolvimento motor amplo foi utilizada a Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS) e para a avaliação das oportunidades do ambiente domiciliar, foi utilizada a Affordances in the Home Environment for Motor Development ­ Infant Scale (AHEMD-IS). RESULTADOS: Em 36,4% dos bebês do crack apresentaram atraso em seu desenvolvimento, 18,2% suspeita e a maioria era bebê típico (45,5%), portanto, não houve associação estatisticamente significativa de bebês crack com o atraso no desenvolvimento, tampouco com faixa etária e sexo. CONCLUSÃO: Os bebês do grupo Crack não eram mais atrasados do que o grupo Não-crack e as oportunidades do ambiente eram razoáveis para o desenvolvimento dos bebês.
