This Zika virus is no joke. U.S. President Barack Obama is now calling for urgent action. It is officially not yet present here in Jamaica, but how is that possible if it has hit most other Caribbean countries, including nearby Haiti?
“The president emphasised the need to accelerate research efforts to make available better diagnostic tests, to develop vaccines and therapeutics, and to ensure that all Americans have information about the Zika virus,” the White House said in a statement.
It seems the government here is doing a better job this time of raising public awareness. But there doesn’t seem to be much fogging going on, nor are clean-up efforts visible. And we are not getting regular updates.
