TVJ Midday News: King Street Tax Office Evacuated | Dengue Cases on the Rise – November 5 2019

good afternoon I am Andrea Chism with
the midday news for this Tuesday November 5 we do apologize for the late
start but a special welcome if you’re watching on one spot Mediacom noxious
fumes from the King Street offices of tax administration Jamaica in downtown
Kingston have resulted in the building being evacuated the fumes are also
reportedly affecting offices on nearby Orange Street including the criminal
records office which has also been evacuated the incident has been
confirmed by chairman of the Police Federation
sergeant Potrero with dengue cases on the increase the Nurses Association of
Jamaica is calling on the Health Ministry to be consistent with its
fogging methods to reduce mosquitos TVJ similar pulling reports 51 persons have
died from dengue related deaths from 2018 to present that’s according to the
ministry of health but president of the Nurses Association of Jamaica
nej Carmen Johnson believes some of those deaths could have been avoided if
the fog in by the Minister of Health was consistent it’s a mixture of chemicals
that they used to do the fog in what persons are recognized over a period of
time that image is not consistent across regions and so I’m a mixie tosser
knowing another set may mix it another way one of the complain that me that we
have heard is that because you take persons aren’t to do the work without
the requisite training and they themselves have complained they find out
that yeah that consistency in how you do things isn’t there
miss Johnson says over the years the profile of the 80s the jab time mosquito
has changed and it is no more aggressive what we found is that they must just
seem to be more violent and as I said you find that the patient especially our
children we need not be of starting the having feeling febrile the temperature
goes up 200 and 300 and to and so they are sicker than they have
ever been again we lock the number of it space
that we have in any intensive care units and so some of these patients when they
come down and are very ill they are not able to get into an intensive care you
need to be cared for the maj president says it’s a public health problem in
need of urgent attention she added that the increase in the number of dengue
cases is impacting nurses it affects donors again with increased patient load
having to care for some of them themselves are affected and some of them
their children or grandchildren also affected we have had a nurse in the
center near who lost her grandson to dengue we have had other nurses whose
children have been so affected by dingy so you know have your family member with
severe didn’t get to care for well it seemed a after kimono to ensure that
those who come in with it and so kind of create a frustration within their main
meanwhile health minister dr. Christopher Tufton taught TVJ news
recently that the Minister of Health will be making changes to how it goes
about fogging similar pollen TVJ news meanwhile the Western Regional Health
Authority is calling for an enhanced vector control program on that side of
the island TV jeiza Shane masters picks up that story health or Authority is
calling for sustained help in treating dengue cases speaking to journalists
recently in Montego Bay st. James acting regional vector control officer Ryan
Morris noted that Western parishes have seen a significant reduction in the ADC
depth a mosquito since July we have seen sixty-seven percent decrease in our
areas index in the western region from as much as 18% don’t to 11 visi
attributes to the work of the enhanced vector control teams put in place by the
Health Ministry however he says there could have been a greater reduction in
the mosquito population if there wasn’t a halt in the program between May and
June every time we have such a program we make a dent in control of the
mosquito we you the Erie’s index as an indicator of
organs and as such we would have seen that going down having had this program
January to March we saw that we had index going down we had cases going down
the program ended March he says even though there has been a reduction in the
mosquito population the number of cases in western Pasha’s is still troubling
but another source of concern is that the ABC tip time mosquito is not the
only source of dengue the ADEs ever picked us or the Asian tiger mosquito
also spreads the virus this new vector I will speak of tend to prefer the more
vegetative area so you are not only concerned about a domesticated one which
circles in and our own room so we didn’t know how to think a little more about
personal protection so bushing of overgrown era lots that have been left
unoccupied and it’s becoming a forest please those no pause at read for the
the vector which is transmitting some of the most deadly illnesses but are the
chemicals used in vector control effective yes it is affecting however
the militaire are the spring that you call it fucking only get rid of the
other mosquito and if our love seller cultural activity is not in tip-top
shape we will realize that in short short order we will see I don’t mosquito
again mr. Morris also noted that climate change is a major factor in dealing with
the mosquito population having temperature variation that will cause
mosquito larvae to come into production much faster than what we are used to so
we must admit that climate change temperature has an impact on
proliferation as such mosquito control is an integrated approach not just
fuckin ocean masters TV genius and the United States Center for Disease Control
and Prevention CD see says so far this year 2.7 million
cases of dengue have been reported in the Americas 2 million were recorded in
Brazil and more than 100,000 in Mexico Nicaragua and Colombia the CDC’s dengue
branch in Puerto Rico says there has been a massive resurgence in dengue
fever in several countries around the globe the cases have been the highest
since 2010 Prime Minister Andrew holder says he’s seeking to strengthen
Jamaica’s relationship with China mr. Hollis who is currently in the Asian
country for an official visit says he also wants to see an increase in
investments from China and just to be clear and to be on the record we can’t
give fiscal incentives any more in other words we can’t buy investments because
that’s what fiscal incentives amount to you know giving tax breaks and reduce
cost on on duties and so forth we can’t do that because what that is doing is
reducing our revenue and thereby impacting on our debt potentially so
what we have to do is make it easier for people to do business in Jamaica so that
they will choose Jamaica Chinese investors have been spending heavily in
Jamaica especially on infrastructure projects and it’s time for a break but
stay with us more stories right after these messages welcome back and we’re continuing the

  6. I still say the police population in ocho rios needs to be properly divided amongst the locals and tourist. Everyone at the ship chasing registeted drivers from the tourist and leaving the people and areas where attention should be focused. The supt. Needs to be changed.

  7. These backwards politicians are not even looking at the big picture a high percentage of regular citizens and returning residents went to pump money into the economy via different businesses but the politicians tie our hands behind our backs with their different fees and tariffs, it's almost like they're saying it's only the Chinese that can bring money to The countries economy.

  8. It amazes me sometimes how people talk about Jamaicas debt, seemingly we dont keep up to date, last I know Debt on the downward trend GDP from almost 150 down to under100, why can't we say something good about our country when good things are happening
