In northern Chile, houses were inspected to determine whether they contained living vectors of Chagas disease. About one-third housed the vector, and a fifth of these insects were infected with T. cruzi. All of the houses inspected in some endemic areas of Argentina contained the vector. 27 Not unexpectedly, humans living in these areas were also commonly infected. 28,29 As a result, this domiciliated insect has been targeted for vector control activities in the past decade and has been eliminated from Chile, Uruguay, and Brazil, as well as large areas of Argentina and Paraguay.

We found trypanosomes, whose morphology is identical to that of Trypanosoma cruzi. ” Carlos Chagas examined many other children because he did not find circulating trypanosomes in adults. Berenice, his first patient, was found (Fig. 14 and still had circulating trypanosomes, remaining asymptomatic, in the indeterminate chronic form of Chagas disease, just as 75% of patients with Chagas disease. Berenice did not die from T. cruzi infection but from other causes. This was therefore the natural path traced by Carlos Chagas, in which the scientific fact was the result of a social construction caused by a public health problem.
