    Yes. Tourists are bringing H3N2 when they come. Flu shots here are not sought out by most so influenza runs rampant when it gets a foothold.

    A lot of visitor imported colds this season too.

    Where I live, Puerto Plata, it is running rampant and people are really sick from 1 to 3 weeks

    At a Tourist destination point.
    On the other hand there always seems to be a Flu going around in RD...an ''all season complaint of Grippe".

    Same here. The kids have barking coughs.

    A few weeks ago, I was too sick to get out of bed and take a flight to Santiago. Fortunately, I had the flu shot so I was only sick for a few days, but I was dragging for another week.

    Agree with Russell.

    I dont think we have seen a tourist in my campo since........ we ate the last one in 2014

    But there is always a grippe going around. I blame the fact that people always eat the same stuff over and over again.

    Have friends with kids in the Bavaro Bilingual School and it seems to have run it's course. The wife and I had it in early January but all seems good now.

    Grippe is ubiquitous ...

    the hygiene - or lack thereof - may be a clue

    PLus the kids are kept out of school . but still allowed to go outside and play... different concept of shaking a fever to me!
    I could never understand that concept.
