Staff from the Central Board of Health (CBH) and the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), engaged with residents from Cashew Hill, Golden Grove and Nut Grove, on ways to prevent the breeding of Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes and the dangers of illegal dumping.
It is very important that persons continue to check their premises regularly, and eliminate mosquito breeding sites by simply covering containers.
By reducing the mosquito population, persons will be less exposed to mosquito-borne diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika.
After the session, the attendees were given 3 environmentally friendly adult mosquito traps. Educational sessions will continue today (Friday 14th October) along with trap distribution.
