Students and Zika Virus

Dotlexx's picture

It’s no longer a news about the heavy outbreak of the disease, Zika virus in the world. The virus originated from Latin America and gotten to Cape Verde in Africa. It’s a virus spread by mosquito especially the Aedes aegypti mosquito which according to Biologist, their rates of spread increases with increase in temperature. Any country can be affected by this virus including Nigeria, thus it is advised that we clear mosquitos in our surrounding. 

Students should also endeavor to keep their environment clean. This should be a student normal practice but perhaps due to the tight schedules of students, this haven’t been a proper practice. I therefore advice that we keep our environment clean to eliminate their breeding places. Sex is another way to transmit the virus. So caution should be applied. Stay clean and play safe. Avoid ZIKA.
