In our fight against the spread of Zika, we have to remain realistic and refrain from overreaction.
Let's face the facts and problems squarely as we strive to reduce mosquito breeding in our neighbourhoods.
However, just as we cannot get rid of all cockroaches and rats once and for all, it is likewise impossible to completely eradicate mosquitoes and all their breeding grounds.
Every rainfall will spawn possible new breeding grounds in every available nook and cranny in the neighbourhoods, despite all the fogging and inspections done previously.
We can do whatever is humanly possible, but let us stop the overreaction and unnecessary alarm.
