Relief on the Way; Spraying for Mosquitoes Commences

Kim Bautista

But there is soon to be some relief because starting today, spraying by the vector control unit began across the country.

 

Kim Bautista, Head, Vector Control Unit, Ministry of Health

“Spraying will commence today; this evening. In some areas like Corozal and Orange Walk, we never stopped spraying; I think we have been spraying constantly almost for eighteen months or so in the north, simply because of the dengue situation that we were seeing. But the spraying will occur starting this afternoon in areas such as Corozal, Orange Walk, Belize and Cayo. The anticipation is that after a couple sprays, we should see some significant relief and those activities will be intensified in the coming weeks once the rest of our supplies start being delivered in our country.”

 

Bautista says that they are also awaiting supplies, including malathion pesticide, which are to arrive on July sixth.
