Former councilor Paras Ramoutar is calling on the Ministry of Health to embark on an urgent spraying and cleaning of cesspits in the flood areas in Caparo and environs following the recent floods.
Ramoutar said within recent weeks resident of Caparo, Chickland Road, Carr Trace, Carr Trace Ext, Sharpe Road, Durham Mills, Santa Phillipa, Brasso Piedra, Mamoral Nos1 & 2, Ganess Trace, Todd’s Road, and the several communities that nestle the Brasso Caparo Valley Road have been appealing to the authorities to safeguard their lives against water borne diseases and infections.
With Covid 19 still hovering around, the Ministry of Health should not waver on this assignment but should act with urgency.
Ramoutar said that this flood has interpretation of the biblical warnings, and chided government for failing to act, particularly in that climate warning is now on the international radar, and that Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley attended the one held in Scotland last year, and Penelope Beckles just came back from another held in Egypt. “It seems that the Government is only giving lip service to flood and global warming, and calling press conferences to express their concerns, but not acting. If our government was serious, it would have started aerial spraying and cleaning of cesspits immediately. Get cracking on the job before it is overly late,” Ramoutar said.
