Samuel Williams said: “We are aware of confirmed cases in the United States and Jamaica with relevant travel history.

Samuel Williams urged: “We are asking the public to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families. They can do this by wearing long sleeves and long pants when outside during times mosquitoes are abundant and by always using mosquito repellent containing DEET on the skin. We cannot stress the importance of preventive measures enough. While the Ministry and its affiliated departments will continue to do everything possible to minimise the impact, if the virus is introduced, it will also take personal responsibility from each and every member of the public to ensure the virus is contained,” External link

William Petrie said: “The lab equipment will allow MRCU to determine in less than an hour whether or not a suspected patient tests positive for the virus. This in turn means we can immediately conduct spraying operations in the vicinity of the patient’s residence, rather than waiting for the return of results from overseas. This timing is critical as we need to disrupt the life cycle of the mosquito, which can be less than a week, in order to break the cycle of transmission. In addition, this equipment will enable us to look for presence of the virus in mosquito populations,” External link

William Petrie said: “Aedes aegypti only breeds around the home; around houses and yards,” “It does not breed in mangroves, swamps or bush; it likes fresh water. It’s a container breeder, so we are talking about buckets and drums, containers the size of a drinking water glass are favoured by Aedes aegypti. We are encouraging residents to have a look around your home twice a week, it just takes 10 minutes to go around your yard; turn up buckets, cover drums, fix your screens and drain water from plant pots and discarded tyres” External link

I applaud the Department of Tourism and all tourism partners for their continued contributions to this vibrant industry” External link

This means that fogging will take place in the communities for three consecutive nights per week for three weeks to eradicate adult Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which spread the Zika, dengue and chikungunya viruses,” External link
