ST. JAMES HEALTH DEPARTMENT LAUNCH FIGHT AGAINST DENGUE

Despite no reported cases of dengue affecting the parish of St James, since the start of 2019, the St James Health Department has now launched out on a massive drive against the dreaded fever.

Throughout the course of the week, dozens of Vector workers were deployed in and around the city of Montego Bay, in a bid to stomp out the mosquito breeding grounds and to ensure that the parish does not suffer a Dengue outbreak.

Cornel Williams, one supervisor in charge of the Vector workers told MCKOY’S NEWS that they have taken to the street on a drive to wipe out the mosquito breeding grounds.

Williams stated that they are now sanitizing old tires,  pet dishes, drums and flower pots as a caution to prevent a Dengue outbreak.

Residents and business operators within Montego Bay welcomed the Vector control workers and assisted in any and every way they could to ensure that the township is free of mosquitoes breeding grounds.
