The Ministry of Health Wellness and the Environment is taking further steps to rid the country of the aedes egypti mosquito, the vector which is responsible for the spreading of the Zika Virus.
Health Minister, Luke Browne, announced at a media conference this week that his ministry will be embarking on a massive nation-wide clean-up campaign, which will be focusing first on hot spots across the country.
Minister Browne said a committee has been set up to supervise the Ministry of Health’s response to the Zika and mosquito threat. He said the Ministry will remain on high alert, to protect the population from the virus.
