In several countries and territories of the Caribbean and Central America, the season with the highest circulation of dengue has begun; this is occurring in a context of intense transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in the Americas. The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) calls on Member States to strengthen surveillance, diagnosis, and treatment, and at the same time to carry out actions for the eventual expansion of primary and specialized care services, mainly in places where a seasonal increase in the number of cases of dengue and other arbovirosis is expected, along with the increase in cases of COVID-19.
