Health ministry tackles chikungunya as two new cases confirmed

JAMAICA&;S health authorities yesterday signalled that they have gone into combat mode since two cases of chikungunya were detected earlier this week in individuals with no travel history outside of the island. Health Minister Dr Fenton Ferguson told the country that since the confirmation of local transmission of the mosquito-borne virus, his ministry has implemented intense vector control activities, including fogging of the surrounding areas and communities in which the affected individuals reside in three-day cycles each week. This will continue for a period of three weeks. The minister said samples from the infected individuals found with chikungunya were sent to the Caribbean Public Health Agency, which confirmed the positive results on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 5.
