Fenton Wants ChikV

Embattled Health Minister, Dr. Fenton Ferguson, says it would be good for him to contract the mosquito borne Chikungunya virus.

Speaking today with Nationwide’s Rashawn Thompson, Dr. Ferguson says although he’s taking preventative measures, contracting Chik-V would help him to better understand the concerns of Jamaicans.

The Health Minster says he believes he’ll contract Chik-V soon, as a number of his government colleagues have been suffering from the virus.
