Honourable Skelton: “THE ZIKA VIRUS- There Is No Cause For Undue Alarm”

Tuesday, 30 August 2016 - 3:20pm

We have been monitoring the spread of this mosquito-borne virus across the Americas and the Caribbean region since local transmission was first reported in Brazil in May 2015. When local transmission was later detected in St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, and the neighbouring US Virgin Islands, we anticipated that it would not be long before the virus reached the shores of the BVI.
