Ministry of Health Issues Red Eye Alert!


The Ministry of Health in Saint Lucia has issued an alert to the pubic to be on the lookout for Conjunctivitis, more commonly known as ‘red’ or ‘pink eye.’

This comes in the recent warnings from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) which earlier in June reported an increase in the number of cases in the Bahamas, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, and Martinique.

This disease is highly contagious and can last between two and three weeks.
