Motion research approach Chikungunya adopted
WILLEMSTAD - An efficiency research on the Ministry of Public Health’s approach regarding the Chikungunya virus will be initiated. This initiative is a proposal of the Independent Member of Parliament, Omayra Leeflang. The Parliament has unanimously adopted a motion to do so.
During the public meeting of parliament to discuss the epidemic, it became known that the MPs were not impressed by the approach of the Minister of Health, Environment and Nature, Ben Whiteman to tackle this serious problem.
For this reason, an investigation will be conducted on the method used by the Public Health Department to fight against this virus or if the department has done enough to prevent the virus from spreading.
The motion states that recommendations should be made on how to proceed in the future if there is an epidemic outbreak.
