    Default Coronavirus - Is the DR prepared ?

    First case of the deadly virus from China comes to WA State in the US.

    How will the DR be able to defend against this virus ? Are they screening people arriving from China ? This virus has already killed sick and infected hundreds more.

    Seems a lot of deadly viruses start in China - too many people ?

    No, they aren't. Every little flu here gets everyone... Imagine what would happen with this one...

    We/They are well prepared

    While there is no particular treatment for the coronavirus, recommended measures are similar to those for cold, such as rest and drinking a lot of fluid.

    Dominicans are reactive. Not proactive.
    They do not believe in making preparations
    for anything.. be it Coronavirus, an earthquake,
    water rationing or unwanted pregnancies. Not
    going to happen.

    Sure, that's why the government gives free vaccinations.

    Paid my cable bill last month and didn't I catch a cold from the sniffling clerk processing my payment - I thought the change felt a little wet.

    Caught another cold from a grocery store clerk.

    Plumbers helper arrived to fix a leaking pipe looking like death warmed over.

    The secret seems to be staying away from other people.

    20 years here and all sorts of outbreaks in the D.R. over and over, year after year. I had Dengue a few years ago. That's it. Colds went way down being here to the point of we don't remember our last one; both wife and I. Have not had the flu here... ever.

    Yes, lot's of people get infected here with whatever but mostly due to normal reoccurring virus'. We don't hang out on Pedro Clisante (STDs anyone?) or go to large events. Just not our style. The very few colds that we have had we can trace back to being on a plane...........loaded with gringos that don't know how to cover when they sneeze all over everyone else.

    Any additional virus will have some impact but really nothing like other countries will have.

    Relax. The Umbrella Company has not arrived.

    Yet. lol

    When you have kids you get new variations free home delivery all the time.

    Kindergarten and colegios are breeding grounds. Believe me.

    I am exposed daily to hundreds of grubby hands, runny noses, ...etc. Perhaps it builds up your immune system.
