Epidemiological risk in a Boyeros residential area. Wastewaters flow on the streets
I, Carmen González Cabrera, a neighbor of calle 267, número 17829, entre 176 y 187, reparto Mulgoba, municipio Boyeros, report that a large group of neighbors in this town have been exposing the cruelty the government has allowed regarding the resident families in this area. I state it is the government because it is the only one who can solve this but does not do so.
For several months the main pipeline where the wastewater of all the houses of the Mugoba neighborhood discharge has been clogged and it ruptured somewhere in the neighborhood. The wastewaters are pouring on the street.
In some places the water enters the houses. This causes illnesses such as dengue fever, which has triggered in that sector of Boyeros. The situation worsens since all those wastewaters reach a ditch that runs next to the wells that provide clean drinking water to the pipeline that supplies this and neighboring municipalities.
We have now gone to the People’s Defenders and the Human Rights Defenders of the Cuba Independiente y Democrática Party (CID), since we have gone to all the government agencies, but nothing, they have not answered us at all. We fear for our family, mainly for our children who are the ones most likely to suffer illnesses. That is why we want to expose it to see if we can solve it or someone reacts once the problem is made public.
