Information on Chikungunya disease has only recently been made available to tourists entering the country, with some still surprised to discover the presence of the debilitating virus in the Cook Islands.
A recent report published by the World Health Organisation has labeled the Cook Islands as the fattest nation in the world, but the Ministry of Health isn’t happy with such a negative report.
With ongoing rain and cold periods forecast for the Cook Islands, it’s the perfect time for residents to protect themselves and their families against the flu.
The Cook Islands Public Health Service says it is doing its best to keep up with a programme to spray insecticide around the homes and workplaces of Chikungunya disease victims in a bid to control the spread of the debilitating virus.
Cook Islands Public Health Services staff have apparently been barred from talking to the media about the spread of mosquito-borne viruses on Rarotonga.
