Reduction In Mosquito Breeding Sites In Westmoreland

VECTOR control officer at the Westmoreland Health Department, Ryan Morris is reporting a major reduction in breeding sites for the Aedes aegypti mosquito in the parish.

 

He said that following the declaration of an outbreak of dengue fever in January, the department's capacity was enhanced with the addition of 29 temporary vector control workers, from the Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) Programme and the Ministry of Health's Vector Support Programme, bringing the total to 60.


They worked along with the eight permanent workers to destroy mosquito breeding grounds in the parish.


He said that the boost in the staff complement enabled the department, to carry out eradication activities in more communities.
