Health Mosquitoes are to be taken seriously

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 02 Oct 2015 – Environmental Health says we can take the bite out of mosquito bites, and issued some tips yesterday including that flower pots, buckets, barrels, boats, garbage lids, open cesspits, tree holes, pool covers and even toys can become breeding spaces for virus carrying insects. These warnings become far more weighty after 2014, and the boost in cases of Dengue Fever and Chikungunya Virus after Tropical Storm Cristobal, a rain maker which left stagnant water in nearly all islands for weeks. The information from EHD also becomes more important now that TCI has to cope with the after-effects of nearly three days of rain. Last year, not only did the country run out of repellents and supplies, but many were sickened and the hospital was bombarded with cases.
