Your Turn: Concerns about the Zika virus making its way to Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

This week’s "Your Turn" segment goes to Sandy Shaneyfelt. Shaneyfelt and others are expressing their concern on our Facebook page about what will happen if the Zika virus spreads to the Baton Rouge area.

An East Baton Rouge Mosquito Abatement official says his department is ready to deal with virus. Shaneyfelt is not so sure. In her words:

How can East Baton Rouge Parish say they are ready to "control" the mosquito population, when last season they were the worst I have seen them in years and we never, and I repeat never,  saw one truck go around. This year is going to be worse because we have had such a mild winter.

That’s Sandy Shaneyfelt’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
