Fisheries, Forests joins ‘Fight the Bite’ campaign
The Minister for Fisheries and Forests, Osea Naiqamu yesterday spearheaded the ministry’s clean-up campaign around the Toorak area in Suva as part of the Ministry of Health’s ‘Fight the Bite’ campaign.
Speaking to the officers who rallied at the ministry headquarters in Toorak, Mr Naiqamu said that this was a great cause and one which all citizens of this nation should take seriously.
“The aim of this clean-up is to eliminate vector mosquito breeding grounds to combat the spread of the Zika virus, dengue fever and Chikungunya,” Mr Naiqamu said. We all play important roles in this important campaign and by doing this we are showing people in this community that we care and that we need to keep our homes and communities clean and free of mosquitoes.
