Ministry of Health receives 150 bed nets to assist in the ongoing fight against the threat of ‘Zika’
As the fight against Zika continues here, the Ministry of Health is the recipient of 150 mosquito bed nets donated by the West Dominica Children's Federation.
Coordinator of the Federation, Beverly Baron, said the nets valued at EC$5,000 will assist the Ministry in its fight against the dreaded virus.
According to Baron, the nets were originally intended as a post Erika activity in the affected communities.
Meanwhile, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Helen Royer, says this donation is indeed timely, as bed nets were part of their action plan.
