THE EDITOR, Sir:

On the current chik-v crisis, the key, to my thinking, is prevention. A little lemon eucalyptus oil can keep mosquitos at bay. In addition, not wearing fruity creams and the like would be helpful. Keep things natural and simple. Let us do a little research and inform the people, instead of panicking and letting down the nation over and over again. Regarding Ebola, the reason it has become so deadly in parts of Africa is the culture. Apparently, when a person dies from Ebola, the body is most infectious, so not touching the body, and leaving removal and burial preparation to folks fully equipped and protected to handle it, is what is lacking.
