[Surveillance of schistosomiasis in Hubei Province in 2010].Zhongguo Xue Xi Chong Bing Fang Zhi Za Zhi. 2011 Aug; 23(4):438-40.ZX
To understand the endemic situation of schistosomiasis in surveillance sites of Hubei Province in 2010.
According to The Scheme of Schistosomiasis Surveillance in Hubei Province, 207 endemic villages were selected as surveillance sites, where the surveys of residents, livestock and Oncomelania snails were carried out.
In the 207 surveillance sites, the infection rates of residents and cattle were 1.01% and 1.14%, respectively, the densities of living snails and infected snails were 0.50 and 0.000 4 snails/0.1 m2, respectively, and the infection rate of snails was 0.08%.
Compared with that in 2009, the endemic situation of schistosomiasis in Hubei Province in 2010 has decreased obviously, but as the repeatability of the disease, the control of infectious sources and the management of cattle should be strengthened, as well as the snail control.
