The Ministry of Health’s Vector Control Unit will fog some districts in St. Michael this Friday, July 13, as part of its continuing efforts to reduce the presence of the aedes aegypti mosquito on the island.
Fogging will be done on Brandons Beach as well as Brighton, Spring Garden Highway, Pile Bay, Carlton, Carlton Terrace, Black Rock Main Road, Strakers Tenantry, Carters Gap, Danesbury, Retreat and the surrounding areas.
Fogging will begin at 4:30 and end at 7:30 p.m. each day, and householders are asked to assist in the elimination of the 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 should 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.??
