    Bonao: Falcon Bridge neighborhood (El Barrio de los Gringos)

    I think that's it. There are two streets that look like they could be the ones (Arboleda and Buena Vista). How's Bonao these days? Safe to drive around (this was a very nice neighborhood, so it's probably ok)?

    Bonao: Falcon Bridge neighborhood (El Barrio de los Gringos)

    Supposedly, because this is unknown, and there is certainly no evidence that infection confers immunity.

    How many people do you think are really positive for Covid19 in the DR?

    I find it amazing how people can espouse the social darwinism policies of the Nazis, the CCP (Google what they are doing to muslims/falung gong)...by saying that it is good that the virus will kill people. That's all great in the abstract, but I wonder if the person that made the comments you...

    You have a forrest of tress, with x amount of trees in it (x= total number of trees). A fungus starts infecting some of the trees (infection = i), and killing others (k). You don't have an adequate amount of tests to test the entire forest, so you only test some the trees that are showing...
