Chikungunya containment high on the agenda

by | Jul 22, 2014

Mosquito 2Head of the Inspector Vector Control Division, Dr Clive Teeluckdharry, says he ended a visit to St. Lucia recently confident that Trinidad and Tobago can learn a lot from local health officials on containing the Chikungunya virus.

There are three confirmed cases of the mosquito-borne virus locally.

In December 2013 the mosquito-borne illness was first detected in St Martin.

Since that time most Caricom countries have reported cases of the disease.

Dr Teeluckdharry says he was sent to St. Lucia to observe local best practices for containing the virus.
