The Zika epidemic seems to have ceased in Dominica, as reported cases appear to have halted for over two months.
The Zika virus stuck fear in many individuals, as there seemed to be a growing list of side effects on those affected. Dominica’s health officials are said to have taken several preventative initiatives to stop the virus in its tracks, and this seemed to have limited the virus in Dominica.
Chief medical officer Dr David Johnson, at a press conference held today Thursday said, while there have been no new cases reported on the island, Dominica cannot relax in its response to the dreaded virus.
He noted that the few pregnant mothers who have been diagnosed with Zika, are being actively monitored to ensure their continued health.
