that was reported in dominican press few weeks ago. made me wonder how many of those new yorkers who contracted the disease in DR are dominicans or american-dominican. that is, they travel to DR on regular basis rather than just one off holiday thing.

Q: What measures should be taken to prevent Zika infection?
A: Befriend the local mosquito population by opening your window
and setting out an appeasement of sugar water on the windowsill.


How about having screens in your windows? Use a bug spray and possibly a mosquito net if necessary.
