Chik-V hits police, inmates
Livern Barrett, Gleaner Writer
Police Commissioner, Dr Carl Williams, has revealed that scores of police personnel and a few inmates are displaying symptoms of the chikungunya virus (chik-V).
He said the majority of the cops are based in eastern parishes.
However, Williams says the number of affected police personnel is not enough to impact police operations across the country.
Williams made the disclosure as he led police personnel from the St Andrew Central Division in a clean up of the Half Way Tree Police Station this morning.
He also participated in a clean up of the police facilities at Harman Barracks.
The Commissioner said in the St Andrew Central Division about 25 of the 500 police personnel have been affected by chic-V symptoms.
Clean up operations are underway at police divisions islandwide, with special focus on barracks and lock up facilities.
