The Ministry of Health’s Vector Control Unit will continue its fogging programme for two days next week, as part of its continuing efforts to reduce the presence of the deadly aedes aegypti mosquito on the island.
Fogging starts in St. James on Monday, June 4, when Hoytes Village, Hoytes Terrace, Holders Hill, John Plains, Bagatelle Terrace, Bennetts Tenantry, Arch Hall and the surrounding areas will be fogged.
The following day, Tuesday, June 5, the team will move to Christ Church where Montrose Development, Silver Hill, Silver Hill Housing Area, Silver Hill Landing Scheme, Kendal Hill, Kendall Hill Development, Massiah Development, Maxwell Plains and the neighbouring districts will be visited.
Fogging will begin at 4:30 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. each day, and householders are asked to assist in the elimination of the deadly aedes aegypti mosquito by opening windows and doors to allow the fog to penetrate.
Persons with respiratory problems should protect themselves from inhaling the fog, while pedestrians and motorists must proceed with caution when encountering fogging operations on the street.
Parents are advised to prevent their children from playing in the fog or running behind the fogging machine.
