Health Minister Dr Kenneth Darroux says the government is embarking on a rigorous multi-sectoral population based approach towards reducing the spread of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito.
Today has been designated as ‘National Mosquito Reduction Campaign Day’ to be held under the theme “Stop Mosquito Breeding today, keep Zika away.”
In a national address Tuesday Dr Darroux says this campaign is aimed at mitigating the threat of the Zika disease in Dominica by reducing mosquito breeding.
According to Dr Darroux, the country has had similar threats and has succeeded in reducing incidences and controlling the spread of vector-borne diseases.
