Dengue fever cases on the rise

The Epidemiological Bulletin recently published by the Ministry of Health showed that in Brazil there was a 95% increase in dengue cases, which corresponds to 400,000 new registrations compared to the same period last year .

Until April 2022, there are 180 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the country. In São Luís, the numbers are no different.

infant formula

Studies have long shown that infant formula is the most suitable and safest substitute for breast milk, up to at least nine months of age.

But recently, the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) banned the import, marketing, distribution and even advertising of certain formulas suspected of contamination.

Families who depend on infant formula are very concerned because it meets all the nutritional needs of babies who, for whatever reason, cannot ingest breast milk. Experts stress the need to seek help from those who know the area.

Value per bag

In 2017, airlines were allowed to charge a value for passengers’ checked baggage. The intention was that with this initiative, the value of airline tickets would be reduced.

Again, the objective is to reduce the value of the airfare. The text is transmitted to the Senate for analysis. To be valid, it must be approved before June 1 and sanctioned by President Jair Bolsonaro (PL).

Baggage fees 2

The Chamber approved an amendment by MP Perpetua Almeida (PCdoB-AC) which includes a provision in the Consumer Protection Code (Law 8078/90) prohibiting airlines from charging any type of fee, on domestic flights, for shipping baggage up to 23 kilograms; and on international flights, checking baggage weighing up to 30 kg.
