MRCU and anti-GMO group face off in mozzie discussion

Much has been made of government’s decision to use genetically modified mosquitoes to curb the aedes aegypti mosquito in Cayman.

Concerns over the spread of mosquito-borne viruses like dengue, Zika and chikungunya propelled government to make a decision, but there are those who still don’t feel it is the right one.
