OVER 2 MILLION CASES OF DENGUE FEVER SO FAR ACROSS THE AMERICAS IN 2020 — PUBLIC SERVANT

KINGSTOWN, SVG (BreadFruit News) – One female employee in the Ministry of Health is fed up with attacks on workers by members of the New Democratic Party (NDP).

“We are deeply hurt. I can’t speak for everyone but the majority of us are really incensed by the insensitive statements by spokespersons for the New Democratic Party all in the name of politics.”

Those are the words of one public servant who has been working in the Ministry of Health for the past 12 years. The female employee told us in a statement, “the reality is that aspiring politicians do not pay attention to what we do on a daily basis until its time to score points.”

“I understand politicians will be politicians but come on, it is really heart-breaking when you hear statements like the Ministry has dropped the ball. It’s not the Minister you attacking because he only sets policy, it is us the public servants, us in vector control, us in health promotion, us in the district centres, us across this Ministry.”

In a written statement sent to BreadFruit News, the upset worker said:

“Look at the video now up on SVG Health Facebook page, we have been all over this country last year with a mascot, to homes, to schools, even in the Grenadines. Where were the politicians then?”

“You see everyone now creating memes and feigning outrage because we have a local outbreak but look regionally and see the reality. Check the stats! In this part of the world alone, there have been over 2 million incidences of Dengue fever. I am not talking in the world, across the Americas only.”

“My friends, work colleagues and family are appalled. I want the public to know that it takes all of us to arrest dengue fever. We will continue the education aspect and treatment side of things but really, we need people to manage their immediate surroundings.”

“Political parties should stop throwing public servants under the bus, it is demoralising to go to work and hear all your hard work count for nought because it’s the political silly season. That’s why I don’t get involved or even vote because it seems that you have to consume yourself with politics before common sense and decency.”
