Dengue Prevalent in Koh Phangan

If you're heading to the southern islands soon I just saw on a friend's (resident of KP) FB page that there's a lot of Dengue hitting the island at the moment, take plenty of mozzie repellent and keep it topped up throughout the day and night. Just sayin : )

Not just there, it's a bad year for dengue according to the Public Health Ministry:

I guessed as much Gippy, which is why I put it on the Thailand Forum, we're heading there in 14 days so a bit concerned for my little ones.

Wow... that's a very scary thing. It's almost doubled in cases since last year according to your link, Gippy. I feel badly that so many children under the age of 15 have contracted it. Hope it doesn't turn out to be as bad as forecasted.

Two of our customers in Bangkok have come down with it this year, nasty stuff. I have a coil burning under my desk now, nasty stuff as well though :-(

And don't forget to spray the soles of your feet as the blighters will find an area that you haven't covered.
