Letter to the Media
Now I have Zika, Day Four covered in Prickly rash!, I am hearing that it is rampant. but nothing in the media?
Are you deliberately not broadcasting to the world? I think the time for caution is past.
Please encourage everyone to spray themselves and pregnant women especially to coverup.
Let us harass the Government to do more clean up collections of junk on a regular basis.
Those of us who are sick should be spraying ourselves too.
If "God Forbid" we do have similar conditions as Brazil, where Zika plus "something" is resulting in microcephalic babies and Guillain Barre then what you do now can save lives.
With ChikV the Pharmacies were pushing wrist bands. I really think pregnant women should have these on their ankles. The maternity wards should have mosquito nets. In fact all the hospital beds should have mosquito nets.
As I lie here in bed feeling like I have lost a battle with a bed of nettles! I am very concerned to think that the 80% who are asymptomatic are walking around having mosquitos bite them and pass it on.
However all is not lost, with prompt and strategic action, I suspect Dominica has an opportunity to lead the way and by the end of the year we will have herd immunity and a pristine environment and be the best place to come on holiday.
