For those who haven't heard- Dorrie is in the hospital with Hemmoragic Dengue Fever. Several others in town have been tested for Dengue and are indeed infected. This is a very serious health issue and everyone should be looking around for places mosquitos might be breeding. Open water tanks, flower pots, puddles in the street- anywhere there is standing water. |
The laboratory in Melaque run by Benny is open from 8am to 5pm and the results come back in hours. The test she does also shows whether you have been exposed to Dengue. The clinic here in town can also do a test, but it takes days to find out. There is not much that you can do except rest, but if Hemmoragic is indicated this is VERY SERIOUS and not to be ignored.
If anyone knows more info please post it. We send our best to Dorrie and if she needs any help please have her contact us.
