Ten additional workers will be employed at the Trelawny Health Department’s Vector Control Unit as the ministry steps up efforts in destroying mosquito breeding sites in the parish.

“We are expanding the temporary work staff,” Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton told journalists following a recent meeting with Falmouth Hospital staff as well as other stakeholders, to discuss vector control measures.

“We will be moving from 40 to 50 Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) programme as well as Ministry of Health (Vector Support Programme) personnel, who will be working alongside the 10 permanent workers. They will be deployed in critical communities, like Albert Town, where there are a high number of Aedes aegypti breeding sites,” he said.

The additional workers, he said, will be “mapping the town centres to create awareness” among residents, in order to get them to participate in the eradication of mosquito breeding sites.

He noted that January has been active in terms of mosquito breeding, and, as such, the Trelawny Health Department is redoubling its vector control efforts.
