LUCEA, Hanover — Western Regional Health Authority (WRHA) Director Errol Greene has confirmed that some patients at Noel Holmes Public General Hospital in Lucea have been relocated to accommodate the extermination of bugs which have infested a section of the facility.

“The area that it is concentrated, the patients are being relocated to treat it,” Greene told the Jamaica Observer Friday afternoon. “We realise there is a problem and we are dealing with it right now.”

The Observer had received a video in which a swarm of bugs was seen on walls at the hospital.

A check with the WRHA regional director revealed that the insects were transported to the health care facility by pigeons in the area.

“I can tell you that pigeons are carrying the bugs. But it is being treated right now as we speak and we are going to work out now how we deal with the pigeons. It (infestation) is contained, it is not all over the hospital; it is one small area,” Greene disclosed.

He did not specify the affected section of the hospital.

“I can’t say at the moment, but I am told it is not all over the hospital; it’s just one area,” he told the Observer.

Greene said he expected to receive a comprehensive report on the bug infestation this week.
