Preventive campaign against Zika, dengue and chikungunya


On Thursday April 28 the Ministry of Health and the Chamber of Commerce and Tourism of Tamarindo will make a Preventive Campaign against Zika virus, dengue and chikungunya. It will be from 7 am to 10 am on the football field of Tamarindo, near the Best Western Vista Villas Hotel.  The aim is to eliminate potential breeding sites of Aedes mosquito.

We ask you please to gather all unused appliances like old washing machines, computers, tires, furniture, and anything that is outside your house and may be a breeding place for this virus. Please bring them to the football field on Thursday April 28 from 7 am to 10 am.

We remind you the five characteristics that help the birth of this mosquito: water, humidity, darkness, proximity to humans and wall (where the mosquito lay their eggs which are larvae after a few hours).

It is very important that we help eliminate these breeding sites. We count on your help. Please share this information.
