The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) has donated a Nissan Frontier, double-cab pick up, worth $138,000, and two fogging machines, valued between US$5,000 and US$7,000, to the Ministry of Health, in an effort to prevent the Zika virus.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Helen Royer, during a press conference on Wednesday, thanked PAHO for the contribution, which she said came following an assessment of the country’s needs after Tropical Storm Erika.

“We are very grateful to the Pan American Health Organization for having provided the Ministry of Health and Environment with a vehicle — that was part of our post-Erika response,” she said. “We had PAHO, almost immediately after the storm, they came in, and they had an assessment of our needs, and out of a very huge budget, they were able to provide us [with] both funds, and the vehicle, and some fogging machines.”

Meantime, Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Health and Environment, Ivor Stephenson, stated that the donations were timely, and would contribute greatly to the effort to prevent the outbreak of the virus on island.

“I want to thank PAHO for this very timely contribution to the Ministry of Health,” he noted. “By now, you should be aware that we are being threatened by Zika, and one of the important resources that we need at this time is transportation, and the use of foggers. That would help — among other activities — to successfully manage the problem of Zika.”

The Ministry has declared that fogging will be one of the primary methods of prevention of the Zika virus.

    These fogging machines are killing mosquitoes and indirectly killing us. Isn’t there a better solution that this ancient method?

      The beauty of it is that it will kill us slowly, but surely.

      Zika was engineered by the US in 1947 from the blood of monkeys in Uganda. They have now created a ‘zika’ epidemic via the use of the very pesticides that cause zika symptoms and cleverly blame the mosquitoes.

      You understand how this works:-

      1) they create a problem to engineer a reaction
      2) they provide the solution which is the very problem that it is to alleviate.

      The end result is that via fake zika, they get us to kill ourselves WILLINGLY by chemming ourselves out!

      Now that’s smart – very, very smart!

    I hope they know what the gift was it this time of the zika virus.
    Don’t take the vehicle to do you all personal business . This is for a cause to prevent this deadly disease from coming to our shores. No parking of this vehicle let at you all home but to go out and smoke the country .

    Bravo for this New truck and the two heavy smoked guns given as gifts to poison out people. The poisonous smoke is bad for the mosquitoes but great for human consumption.
    The Robotic Health Ministry is so in control.

    We believe everything that comes from the white masters.

      Even kill/ sell out their own! Remember that our forebears as slaves were captured and sold as slaves by the black chiefs to the white traders.

      The slave trade could not have flourished without the vital help of the African chiefs. That is our legacy.
      However, when killing us with the pesticides, these idiots should work out that they are killing themselves, their children and families too!
