The director of the Robert Reid Cabral children's hospital, Dr. Clemente Terrero, reported that dengue has reoccurred in the country and registers seven cases in children, who remain in hospital patients.

"Dengue is on the rise again at this time in the hospital," said Dr. Terrero.

He explained that the cases of Covid in children have had a notorious drop, while he stated that only two cases of the virus are reported, of which one of these was discharged yesterday morning.

"The hospital woke up today, we only have two cases of children who are completely stable," said Terrero.

However, the doctor indicated that they have all the hospital rooms full of parents who go to appointments with their children.

He added that it is possible that cases will spill over, due to the de-escalation in the curfew. “At a private level we have also been receiving patients; In other words, it is possible that things are heating up in relation to this disease in recent days ”, he added. He stated that the de-escalation values it as effective, as long as people maintain the prevention measures for the Covid virus.

"They have to encourage us because we are not going to spend every day in curfew, but always maintaining the basic measures," said the specialist.
Later he made a call to all those people who have not yet been inoculated to voluntarily attend their nearest vaccination center.

"We have the risk of a regrowth, so we can prevent that if we get vaccinated because the country has enough vaccines," he said.

I've had dengue twice.
First time was Nagua fall of 2012.
Second time was Sosua Oct 2013.
Had a bad case of influenza 1st week
of Feb 2020. Neighbors had it as well.
No one died. No one went and got checked to find out if it was Covid (same symptoms)
or just good old fashion gripe.
I'll take Covid/ Influenza over having
Dengue again any day of the week.

Mr AE had dengue a few years ago. It was awful. He was hallucinating and now has some neurological issues from the dengue. Scary stuff.
