    What goes around, comes around...... there are no guarantees that the virus will not come from China; but there is a plausible opportunity the virus can come from any one of the Tourists travelling to DR for a week of R&R.
    I attended a wedding 13 January and have been sick ever since .... that's the second cold since 27 Dec. 19.

    In the past I contacted Dengue while living in Barbados , Chickcongoya (misspelled)here in DR, caught a parasite in India and developed kidney stones from high protein diet in Sub-arctic Canada...... ''Ship Happens''
    Back home folks my age are dying from the winter run of viral pneumonia.
    So try some rum/honey/hot water and lemon... that will cut the intensity of any affliction.
    Thats my opinion anyway.

    Indeed they do but I wonder how many

    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.
    "Drinking a lot of fluid" that's my motto from day one about 28 years ago

    I dont know what percentage but they have a mobile unit they send into the campo , they do it at the schools and I know many that take their babies. More than you think.

    Coverage rates are high in the DR:

    Between 2012 and 2015, BCG vaccine coverage was over 95%, and DPT3 coverage ranged from 82% to 90% in the under-1 population.

    The advantage this country is it has a limited amount of international ports making screening of foreign arrivals easier. Fewer doors equals fewer screeners needed.

    Lay people properly trained to spot arrivals suspected to having the illness can direct them to professionals for more scrutiny.

    Let's hope this virus is not as harmful as represented and nobody gets really ill.



    Regards,

    PJT
