Carnival 2019: Help prevent mosquito-borne diseases. Wear light colored clothing/use mosquito repellent

GREAT BAY, (DCOMM) – The Collective Preventive Services (CPS), a government department under the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour, is calling on the community as well as visitors to wear light colored clothing at dusk; wear long sleeve shirts and pants; and use mosquito repellent to prevent being bitten by an infected mosquito that could possibly be carrying a mosquito-borne disease.

It’s the Carnival season, and visitors and residents are out and about enjoying the Carnival festivities.

Mosquito-borne diseases such as zika, dengue fever and chikungunya are transmitted by an infected/diseased female vector Aedes Aegypti mosquito.

An increase in the mosquito population puts residents at risk. CPS wishes residents and visitors a safe, happy Carnival 50.
