Denque Outbreak

It would seem that Dengue is not so uncommon. We are experiencing an outbreak here in Key West and CDC tests show a relatively large number of people have been sero positive or infected at some point in their life. I haven't paid much attention to the #'s since I have bigger fish to fry right now but 2 friends have suffered and recovered with some memory, hearing, and energy level problems. Dave
