The content originally appeared on: Antigua News Room

Due to anticipated strong winds, the Central Board of Health temporarily halted its fogging anti-mosquito campaign to prevent ineffective chemical dispersal against the aedes aegypti mosquito, a dengue fever carrier.

The decision ensures chemicals remain effective. Other mosquito elimination methods, like treating water catchments, continue.

Fogging, vital in outbreak areas, reduces virus transmission from mosquitoes to humans.

The pause aims to counter high winds hindering chemical efficacy. The mosquito remains the sole virus carrier between humans.
