What it should have been

What it should have been

Our story yesterday, "Zika: MOH to issue advice on treating pregnant women", quoted Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli as saying:

"Fogging is carried out in a selective and targeted manner to avoid the build-up of resistance in the mosquito population."

This is incorrect. It was Senior Minister of State for the Environment and Water Resources Amy Khor who made the point. We are sorry for the error.
