Time to get out the mosquito repellent.

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
