Abstract

TRIANA-VIDAL, Luz Elena et al. Analysis of the spatial and temporal distribution of the Dengue virus (2006- 2017), Zika (2015-2017) and Chikungunya (2014-2017) in Colombia. Infect. [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.4, pp.352-356. ISSN 0123-9392.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22354/in.v23i4.810.

Objective:

to describe the spatial and temporal distribution of dengue, zika and Chikungunya viruses in Colombia and to identify clusters at spatial, temporal and space-temporal levels.

Methods:

A descriptive study was developed about the space and time distribution of the Dengue virus (2006-2017), Zika (2015-2017) and Chikungunya (2014-2017) in Colombia, using principles of spatial statistics, namely the spatial data exploratory analysis.

Results:

Areas of Colombia were identified where there is a higher density and prevalence of cases and were analyzed 1124 municipalities for each event (cases of Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya). Significant clusters (P<0.05) were proven in spatial, temporal and space-temporal analysis, in the south-western zone of the Andean region and in the Orinoquia region.

Conclusions:

Two conglomerates were confirmed for the Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya events, that could be established as areas of higher risk of co-infection.

Keywords : Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya; analysis by conglomerates; risk áreas.
