Fighting chikungunya

Published:Thursday | September 18, 2014 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

As we are in the midst of a raging chikungunya outbreak, I would like to propose to the Ministry of Education to relax the school uniform rule and have the children dress in protective clothing: (long pants and shirts for both girls and boys, or thick tights under the girls' uniforms. It may not be pleasing to the eye, but we do need to arm ourselves and our kids as much as possible in this out-of-control outbreak.
