Dengue fever

I got strong fever last week accompanied with a head ache and back ache–typical symptoms for dengue. As we’ve had it before I was worried (dengue can be extra dangerous when you get another type your immune system thinks it recognises). I got lucky though, the symptoms remained weak and I was fine after only a week.
Researching on the internet I found that there has been a dengue epidemic going on here since April(!) with more and more cases in Tahiti and the Socities, but also some in the Tuamotus and Marquesas.
So it’s a good idea to spray and avoid tiger stripe mosquitoes!
