Chickenpox: decay phase


Cases suggestive of chickenpox have been less numerous in town medicine in the last two weeks (14 and 15) with respectively 20 and 5 cases estimated, according to the last bulletin of the Regional Health Agency (ARS) Guadeloupe / Iles du North. "The level recorded during the last week is clearly below the seasonal threshold", specifies the bulletin. Regarding emergencies, two weekly visits were recorded in the past two weeks. In Saint-Barth, no case has been seen in town medicine since February. This disease, most often mild, can be complicated in particular in subjects immunocompromised by skin infections, pulmonary or neurological damage, according to health authorities.
