    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.
