Two parishes will be targetted when the Ministry of Health continues its fogging programme to rid the island of the aedes aegypti mosquito, and by extension, dengue fever.
On Thursday, May 22, the team from the Vector Control Unit will focus on St. Michael with emphasis to be placed on Rock Dundo Park and its environs.??
Then, the following day, Friday, May 23, Sunset Crest and the surrounding areas will be fogged.??Fogging will run from 4:30 until 7:30 p.m. and householders are asked to assist 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 also instructed to prohibit children from playing in the fog or running behind the fogging machine.
