Chikungunya Notebook: Mitigate and Educate

Primary tabs

The Minister of Health, Dr. Fenton Ferguson, is scheduled to address Jamaicans some time this afternoon or early evening.  I have no idea why this address wasn’t done on Friday, when it was announced, because really there need not be any pomp or any more vague information from him.  The viral fever chikungunya is now out of hand — it is an epidemic — and a lot of work is needed to get things under control.  Dr. Ferguson is no longer worthy of the trust or expectation that he can lead the work that needs to be done.
