Garbage takes over ST neighborhood and “popcorn” diseases, rats and snakes

Posted at 5:52am on Thursday (12)

The unloading site at Quadra 12 in the Muterao district of Serra Tilhada, is causing health disturbances to the residents of the neighbourhood, to the extent that at least 4 people have been infected, 3 with dengue and one with suspicion. In front of the painting, housewife and manicurist Maria Freire, 52, on behalf of the residents seeking help, turned to Lighthouse Hopefully something can be done for them.

“Here it’s hard for us, 3 people with dengue, a lot of shit, no city council or anyone to do anything. Last month they killed a very big snake inside the house, 1.5 meters. The snake passed my son’s foot and entered the house. It’s a snake, It’s a mouse, it’s a cockroach and the scorpions appear out of the yellow, it’s full, they climb up the walls. It’s a lot, rubbish, a lot of stones, people put in more rubbish. The collection is available 3 times a week, so it doesn’t hurt to put it on the collect day. I’m not talking Only on my behalf, but speaking on behalf of everyone because there is a population that is getting sick, and here I have a fever too, and I do not even know if it is dengue, as revealed by Maria Freire, and continued:

“This Moterao is over 33 and nobody does anything for him. In the vacant lot, when you pick up a pick, the owner appears in an instant, why don’t they take care of him? Why doesn’t the city take it and give it to someone who needs it and will take care of it? They made a dump in my street To put the recycling in. There is someone living nearby who has dengue and chikungunya, but what can we do? If we move to another corner, we can’t because we can’t afford it. Most of what you find are recycling carts all night, but no one sees it, The health watchdog must take action because everyone is getting sick, and we are suffering.”

The report from Farol contacted the health watchdog and were told that they would check and had already requested the support of the Municipal Environment Agency – AMMA to solve the problem.
