Statement by Fred Mitchell MP Fox Hill
On Zika Virus In Fox Hill
For Immediate Release
25 August 2016
Last evening I was informed by public health officials that there is one case diagnosed of a patient infected with the mosquito borne Zika virus in Fox Hill.
I wish to ask all residents of Fox Hill to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves from mosquito bites. Try to wear long sleeved clothing and mosquito repellent. More importantly try to eliminate all areas where mosquitos can breed like abandoned cars, cialis generic fridges and car tires. Any stagnant or still water can be a source for the mosquito. The disease is also sexually transmitted.
A community meeting is to be held at St Paul’s Baptist Church on Wednesday 31 August at 6:30 pm. With officials from the Public Health Dept. I am asking all Fox Hill residents to attend.
This is not a time to panic but to exercise the appropriate precautions.
