NEW ZIKA CLUSTER REPORTED AT PARRY AVENUE, TWO PEOPLE AFFECTED

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Just when we thought that the Zika virus have been put behind us, NEA has reported that a new cluster of zika has been found, where two new cases of locally transmitted Zika virus reported at Parry Avenue.

Both the cases involved residents in the area, and NEA assured residents that they have begun vector control operations there. NEA urged residents and stakeholders to be vigilant and continue eliminating mosquito breeding habitats, and advised residents to apply repellent as a precaution. It also requested residents to allow officers to inspect or conduct indoor spraying of their homes.

Let’s hope that this new cluster will not develop into something bigger, and that the two cases are isolated ones where no new cases will be reported after this. We can only hope.
