Medina orders all Government agencies to fight chikungunya

Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina on Tuesday instructed all Government agencies to join the fight against the chikungunya virus, which has sickened more than 32,000 people in just two months.

Concerned with mounting chikungunya cases across the country, Medina ordered all staff of nearly 400,000 workers from most departments to take part on Friday in the nationwide push to eliminate the breeding sites of the mosquito that transmits the disease in all households.

Around 400,000 government workers will visit households to orient families about the disease and eliminate the tanks and other water recipients to store water, where the mosquito breeds.
