PNP canvassers given ZIKV task

Published:Monday | February 1, 2016 | 9:22 AM

General secretary of the People's National Party, Paul Burke, says the party has 25,000 canvassers tasked with helping the authorities in the public education campaign on the mosquito-borne Zika virus.

Typically canvassers are used to help political parties get votes.

However, speaking during last night's mass rally in Half-Way Tree, Burke said it was the national duty of the canvassers to contribute to the anti-ZIKV campaign. 

He urged them not to wear their party colours when they visit communities.
