Re: Dengue

I am not trying to blame anyone, nor is my wariness at the rather shocking news of the extent of the disease an indicator of living "my life" in any particular way. Doctor Franco told me on Monday that in November and December of 2009, she believes that 80% of the local population of La Manzanilla contracted Dengue fever. The suggestion that the epidemic might be noted in one of the websites advertising travel to LM, and featuring news about the area, is an appropriate one. Especially considering that one of the current strains prevelant in LM has a high mortality rate for children, this is something that visitors to the area should be notified about in some manner, don't you think?
