killed when compared to the corresponding period last year and 15
more than a number for all of 2018 dr. Chang states that despite these figures

that there is no need to panic following concerns that there was an
imported case of malaria in st. Catherine doctor Tufton said he also
received a report about a case in st. James the truth is that we do have I am
told up to a dozen or so imported cases each year these are persons when we say
imported these are persons who are abroad the foreigners are locals they go
to continents where malaria is endemic so Africa other countries and they get
bitten and they contract the virus and they come back home and then get ill
when these things arm we have a protocol that deals with them so they are
quarantined they are taken into into hospital quarantine the families and
communities are visited as dr. Thornton pointed out the communities where the
affected individuals are visited and the Health Ministry also tracks the cases where there’s an e to worries if we find
that it is transferred to others by virtue of mosquitos moving the virus and
that would be a lot more challenging for us and our to bear need for concern to
date thank God we haven’t discovered any any transfers so it really is just a
deal with them when they occur and as I said before there is a protocol that is
in place so the public doesn’t need to panic around the issues and we will
certainly keep the public informed if there is that need to provide further
information and it’s time for a break but stay with us we have more stories

diver Yana night wisdom is the first diver to ever be nominated for the rgr
Sports Foundation sportsman of the year and the aquatic sports association of
Jamaica is looking to take advantage of that as Denise Walters reports he is
also one of two athletes nominated for the National Sports Man and Sports Woman
of the Year award for 2019 Martin Lin president of the ASC J says
the ona night wisdoms recent a sportsman of the Year nomination has motivated the
diver to work harder number one it has had a positive spin off Iona himself
he’s already you know and winning the prime minister’s youth award the other
day definitely has put him already elevated and determined to go further
but I see no reason why he won’t qualify for the Olympics because he’s definitely
on the right track Lynne credits night wisdom for doing so well in a sport that
should have hampered him based on his built donor to diving is like a you see
in World was to chuck and feel and I don’t mean wasn’t out in a negative
sense I mean in fact that Jonah’s physique if you look at divers they’re
all at a certain level and and Yona pops up and then our divers continue
below so a he’s above height that divers usually
are be his entire is muscular so what you find is that Jana has to train
harder than other divers to achieve the same result he added that the profile of
diving has risen in Jamaica and the Association will be capitalizing on it
the concept No for this new administration of the aaj is in fact to
get to diving boards for the national aquatic center and start a homegrown
diving program so that definitely and again with with a Jana bucket if in
terms of media in terms of worldwide recognition everybody will understand
that you can go very far with the discipline of diving night wisdom became

  1. There is nothing that this so call health minister said that must be taken into consideration he is a clown he is totally out of his league just pure chat chat chat he is going around in circle chasing after his tale like a bro ? ?bunch a buffoon.

  2. Why the Jamaican politicians continue to make all these pronouncements about crime and violence in Jamaica?? Do they have any control over the people who carry out these senseless act?? As long as the guns still remains the way we solve our problems in Jamaica crime will never go down in this country..

  3. Didn't they say that last year, that the crime rate last year would not so pass this year, and we also here in the past that we could sleep with our doors and windows open.

  4. Jamaica, Jamaica, young and mature men. Build up your country, stop destroying it, I was born and raise there. I always enjoyed coming home for vacation, no more. Jamaicans abrade need to stop supporting the criminals and mudras, get out and work to build up your country, I love my country, my heart is crying out that it will get better. As for the people who make the negative comments, stop, we are educated people. Miss world has lift us up to the world, people, people, do your best and stop the killings. A very merry Christmas to beloved Jamaica.

  5. Every year is di same ting dem ah seh an di same result ahpen

  6. Horace Chang chat bare shit

  7. 3/4 of Jamaicans are traumatised from the amount of crime they witnessed, loss of family from dengue, murders, accidents. Sad politicians are enjoying what is happening.

  8. Why Africa? How quickly you label our black community. Jamaicans politicians in the JLP believe they are white.
    Tufton always deny the dengue seem he is doing the same with the malaria.

  9. So I want to know if the poor doesn't have feeling too….losing their loved ones to hoodlums bout counselling….hmm

  10. He denied there was dengue in the country…now look how many people died from dengue now there's malaria and he is saying no need for concern….tufton rewind and come again do your Job

  11. Horace you need to step down you don't know what you are doing

  12. What about we could sleep with our doors open?

  13. They will never raised a finger to the others nation

  14. I would like to know what that of mechanisms that the minister of national security Dr Horace Chang, is going to implemented. It is only a month talk because it is the easiest thing to say,but to do it is a different alternatives. Because the most mechanisms should be in place since the JLP party government took over power, is more police vehicles should be delivered to the police stations across Jamaica and.
    All now the police stations across does not received them all now, so the police being hampered by the lack of vehicles.
    To do their job more properly, when there I a crime in progress and. Someone called for help the police stations across Jamaica have adequate amount of vehicles to, responded to the crimes scene immediately.
    Unless if the minister of national security Dr Horace Chang can turned over the vehicles, to the police stations across Jamaica.
    That the police is properly mobile with reliable vehicles, so they can be on the scene, as quickly as possible.
    Without that, the situation is dead,dead,because there is no vehicles to patrolling the streets.Or respond to the crimes scene in a flash, the victims does haveto waited for hours and. No response to the scene from the police un time, that is one of the main factors affecting the effectiveness of trying to controlling crimes.
    That ministry is way bigger than Horace Chang, he has no knowledge about how security is done.
    What some people failed to understand ,that not because a per may holds a degree. It not every job is really suitable for, because he or she didn't trained, or study into that field.
    We are going to hold the minister of national security accountable on his promises for the new year,because I know. It is only a promise to keep the people more relaxed, for the coming year, and nothing more.

  15. Babsy grange just nuff and plentyful everything she inna. Kmdt

  16. @POLITICIANS ARE ALL MURDERERS AND CRIMINALS,SCAMMERS. THEY ARE THE WICKEDEST SET OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.

  17. Mr. Chang the zozo not working.

  18. Clueless security minister

  19. the Bible state that fraud and violence never
    leave the street each person have to find God that is inside of them

  20. I can bet the opposition can be apart of these murder cross the country. To make the ruling party looks bad…
    I strongly believe it can be apart of it…

  21. Lip service minister

  22. Transfer Christopher Tufton to national security and make him the minister. Nothing seems to be working so Tufton and his PR machinery might just do the trick!!!

  23. I'm curious to know just how many of those murders were contract killings.. gov should offer criminals double of whatever a person wud pay to have some1 killed in exchange 4 who's hiring. It's hard to stamp out crime without interfering with ppl's rights. U have to get into "dictatorship mode" & that's a no no.

  24. Too much happy police in Jamaica ??

  25. ISAIAH 9: v16
    For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
    Matthew 7: v15
    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (An end times forecast about-Leaders of the Day…).

    Bible says, now this:
    Proverbs 14: v34 – Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. (People all over the World are taken notice!).

    (JUSTICE WILL COME TO WHOM OF ALL THAT ARE – DISORIENTED BY MEN – WORKMENSHIP or WOMEN – WORK WOMENSHIP).

    The standardizing of the country, standards is how much people, the year previously been Kill, to the present YEAR. I ponder, what type of conversation you Leaders’ have plan for the RESURRECTION Morning Daybreak?

    Exodus Chapter 20: v13 – Thou shalt not kill.

  26. Dr Chang remember we are a party of action and not bag of mouth,, we want to see action so please don’t say too much,, for Jamaica cannot continue down this road where people are killed every day,, we would like to see a great change in the New Years by god help
