November 9th, 2023 -- In a passionate social media post, Deputy Leader of The Peoples Labour Party (PLP), Attorney Craig Tuckett, has raised alarm over the escalating mosquito infestations in East Basseterre. Tuckett, a staunch advocate for public health, criticized the lack of robust measures, including fogging and comprehensive media campaigns, to combat the surge of mosquito-borne diseases.
The recent announcement by Prime Minister and Minister of Health, Dr. Hon. Terrance Drew, revealing 22 confirmed cases of dengue fever in the federation, underscores the urgent need for action. Tuckett emphasized that the increased rainfall, coupled with neglected, overgrown properties, has created breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitoes.
Residents, especially the vulnerable youth and elderly, are suffering the consequences. Tuckett pointed out a glaring discrepancy - while some areas receive fogging activities, East Basseterre remains neglected. He urged the government to prioritize the well-being and health of its citizens, warning that if immediate action is not taken, the community will take matters into their own hands.
As East Basseterre grapples with this health crisis, Tuckett's impassioned plea serves as a call to arms, reminding citizens of their collective power to demand change and safeguard their community's health. ?????? #EastBasseterreHealthCrisis #PLPAdvocacy
