Granger slams response to Chikungunya
Government was chided on Friday for its response to the spread of the mosquito-borne Chikungunya virus, with APNU Leader David Granger stating that the authorities had not been very forthcoming about the threat it posed.
Speaking at an APNU press briefing, Granger said the government was “fogging late” for the virus since it has already spread throughout Region Five and Georgetown.
He made reference to an outbreak of gastroenteritis, pointing out that reports on the number of cases had ceased after those numbers started to rise. “It was 530 cases and then there was a news blackout,” he said.
