Jamaica’s Approach To Fighting The Zika Virus

As more countries report cases of the Zika virus, our local government is doing what they can to help stop infections from spreading.

Since Brazil made its first discovery of Zika in May 2015, the number of cases there and in the Americas has grown.

The lack of treatment and preventive options has led officials in Colombia, Jamaica and El Salvador to advise women to avoid getting pregnant so long as the Zika threat remains.

Jamaica is also getting creative with public health campaigns, releasing a public service announcement in the form of a catchy, reggae music video that advises people about how to cut down on mosquitoes, watch video below.
