Chikungunya virusWILLEMSTAD – The Health Department started spraying in various neighborhoods against the Chikungunya virus.

There were initial talks about the actions being concentrated in the neighborhoods of Suffisant, Muizenberg and Stenen Koraal and limited only to these areas. But seeing the rapid spreading of the virus, the Health Department will expand their actions to more neighborhoods on the island.

The representatives of the Health Department explained that they will spray in the various neighborhoods during this whole week. This will occur from six to nine in the evening. This action started in Nieuw Nederland, Scharloo, Fleur de Marie, Brievengat, Rancho, Sabana Hundu and Amerikanenkamp.

It is recommended to close all windows and doors a few minutes before the truck passed by and keep these closed for a while afterwards. It is also recommended to hold pets inside as much as possible.
