About 6 million to 7 million people worldwide are estimated to be infected with Trypansosoma cruzi, the parasite that causes Chagas disease.
Chagas disease is found mainly in endemic areas of 21 Latin American countries (1), where it is mostly vector-borne transmitted to humans by contact with faeces or urine of triatomine bugs, known as 'kissing bugs', among many other names, depending on the geographical area.
These bugs, vectors that carry the parasites, typically live in the wall or roof cracks of poorly-constructed homes in rural or suburban areas.
The parasites enter the body when the person instinctively smears the bug faeces or urine into the bite, the eyes, the mouth, or into any skin break.In the past decades, however, it has been increasingly detected in the United States of America, Canada, and many European and some Western Pacific countries.This is due mainly to population mobility between Latin America and the rest of the world. The initial acute phase lasts for about 2 months after infection.The competition was organized by CONMEBOL, South America's football governing body.Twelve teams competed, the ten members of CONMEBOL and two guests from CONCACAF – Mexico and Jamaica, the latter of which competed in the Copa América for the first time.
