Health Minister says government has approved 1million EC Dollars for the fight against the Zika virus
Health Minister Kenneth Darroux says government has approved 1million EC Dollars towards the fight against the Zika virus. That’s word from the country’s Health Minister Dr Kenneth Darroux.
Although no cases of Zika have been detected in Dominica, health care officials say it is inevitable that the virus will soon reach the shores of Dominica. The virus has already been detected in several Caribbean islands, including Dominica’s neighbours Martinique and Guadeloupe. And Dr Darroux says a lot of these monies are readily available from last year’s budget.
Meantime, Dr Darroux says every dollar approved would be useless if individuals do not take responsibility in stopping the spread of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito.
