Trinidad Express / Trinidadian singer-songwriter Darryl Gervais has recorded a new song for the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) to raise awareness in the Caribbean about the need to fight Aedes aegypti, the mosquito that carries Zika, Chikungunya, Dengue, and other arboviruses. The song, “Do Your Part”, serves as a musical public service announcement (PSA) set to an electro-Caribbean melody. It warns listeners that “there’s a danger in our region causing problems that can affect us all” and says, “We’ve got to come together as one” to eradicate Aedes aegypti. Some “good things to do” to fight the mosquito are to safely discard containers that can collect water, make sure drains are free flowing, and use bed nets at night as well as in the daytime.
