Unhappy hotelier calls for help
30-oct-2014 - Samoa Observer.

“We are not ants or leeches and we provide income for people. We need to work together because there won’t be a business or country or place for people to come to if this thing gets out of hand”

The chikungunya outbreak is not slowing down.

So claims a hotelier who approached the Samoa Observer to vent her frustrations after six of her staff members became sick with the virus in one week.

The hotelier, who asked for her name and that of her property to be withheld from publication, fearing repercussions on her business, said she became frustrated after repeated attempts to get the Ministry of Health to spray her property.
