    "Who stated they infected themselves and only stayed a couple days?"

    In the news for example?

    "Officials say the couple arrived at the Bahía Príncipe hotel in La Romana on May 25 and planned to leave May 30, the day they were found after they failed to check out."

    A) I never said any one specific person had Dengue, MORE THAN one person has died in the D.R. recently...
    B) Symptoms usually last for 2–7 days, after an incubation period of 4–10 days...

Like the couple that were assassinated in Santo Domingo East a while back, as a revenge hit. The kid was Dominican with US citizenship.
    EXACTLY, I was about to write the same thing. In fact, Most of these deaths listed, regardless of the country, are of people who were born in that country, became a naturalized American and died while visiting their native country but get listed because they are American citizens.
    Your average, non-Hispanic American tourist is not going to visit Navarrete, San Francisco de Macorís, or Bonao, so the deaths in remote places like that are practically guaranteed to be Dominicans who acquired American citizenship.

    Ah - the Daily Mail - always the source of sensible, considered reporting. Rojo was "forced" to leave the hotel? Hardly.

The gentleman did complain about not feeling well days earlier, but his lady was fine. If they both decided to indulge in a last night before we go in room drink, then they might have suffered the same fate, What is strange to me is that I saw no mention of this case in the D.R. Newspapers, yet it happened before the other couple died at the same resort......Cover up perhaps?
    That's my guess, tainted liquor. They do that a lot in Mexico so it's finally reached the DR

    Maybe he meant "bootleg, or falsified". I've drank hundreds of cases of Brugal, some Cleren (sp?) and lots of other sh-- booze, but have never been poisoned.
