In other words, it is al­ways lurk­ing around on our is­land. The in­fec­tion is rarely fa­tal, but the pain and in­ca­pac­i­ta­tion from it can be se­vere. In or­der to re­strict the spread of the in­fec­tion, con­trol of its in­sect vec­tor is crit­i­cal.” Read his on­line col­umn right now at www.ja­maica-gleaner.com.
