I’m living here with my family, 3 year 9 year and my wife and me and we are fine. we did and we still do a normal live, then anybody else here on the island.
what the press say's is not true and what the government say's is not true.
chick is still here, but much much less now, as we are in winter time. we need to see what is coming in summer time.
but still, it's not the tourist who is in "danger", it's the general population.
the hotels protect there environment so well, that some tourist do not even see a mosquito.
the government works on the problem, so that it does not get a epidemic.
but the result of this effort we will be only see, at beginning of summer, where we get a much higher mosquito population then in winter.
chick, is not danger’s to human, so that you will die from it.
it's a painful virus, but where mostly, people recover in a week.
