Dengue: Saint-Barth
at stage 3 of the epidemic
Biopôle Ino Laboratory is being regularized. At the end of the week, all the sums due will be completely paid. An advertisement which did not convince Document Henri Duvert who only evokes a "solution outline". Also, the deadline of November 22 to cease any collaboration between the laboratory and the Bruyn hospital remains effective and the

In the document, the biologist doctor "very strongly" encourages the patients of Saint-Barthélemy to "turn to priority to their general practitioner who has any compensation to manage the first emergencies and possibly prescribe additional exams-

Nevertheless, "by ethics and
The prefecture of the Northern Islands and the Regional Health Agency organized a press conference last week to alert a degraded situation concerning the evolution of the number of dengue cases identified. Paul Guibert, territorial director of ARS, said that the results were not as alarming in Saint-Barth and Saint-Martin as in Guadeloupe or Mar- Ti. However, since then, northern islands have been placed at level 3 of the epidemic. A passage in stadium 3 which intervened on Thursday November 9 in the evening.
In Saint-Barth, two people were hospitalized last week, for 21 passes in the emergency room of the hospital. A rumor that two people affected by hemorrhagic dengue was transferred to Saint-Martin circulated on Friday, November 10. “Information” denied by the Regional Health Agency. The prefecture confirms whenever a health evacuation has been organized "as a precaution and anticipation" for a patient whose symptoms were potentially glimpsed a hemorrhagic form of the virus.
One thing is certain, it is that the number of dengue-confirmed cases has been constantly increasing for more than a month. In three weeks, they went from 31 to 55 to 70 according to the latest public health bulletin France. And this is only an official assessment since many people affected by the virus are not necessarily examined and analyzed. In fact, residents of the island are worried about the growth of the epidemic. Online, some publications appeal to the collector to involve "professionals" of demo-titation. Especially in so -called sensitive places, such as schools. "The season begins and we all need to work to pay the rents overpriced and the food also

If he gets hit on the fingers explaining that the community is not the sole responsible and that "the whole population must make the need" to protect themselves and avoid the spread of the soft and the virus, another user raises a crucial point. That of everyone's involvement in the vectorsal struggle. Mainly in the elimination of all potential larval lodges around homes (each stagnant water receptacle, for example). As in Guadeloupe and Martinique, it is the serotype 2 of the dengue which was essentially detected in the northern islands. Dengue has four different serotypes.

Difficult to fully understand but the question is whether Collectivity is running any anti-misquito spraying campaigns like in the past. Also I remember seeing something about experimental dengue vaccine (not mRNA type).

More a campaign of personal recognizance- dump saucers and the like. Follow the @andynap protocols to prevent becoming a vector.

is the mosquito not the vector ? not the human ?

Human-to-mosquito transmission​

Mosquitoes can become infected by people who are viremic with DENV. This can be someone who has a symptomatic dengue infection, someone who is yet to have a symptomatic infection (they are pre-symptomatic), but also people who show no signs of illness as well (they are asymptomatic).

Human-to-mosquito transmission can occur up to 2 days before someone shows symptoms of the illness, and up to 2 days after the fever has resolved.

The risk of mosquito infection is positively associated with high viremia and high fever in the patient; conversely, high levels of DENV-specific antibodies are associated with a decreased risk of mosquito infection. Most people are viremic for about 4–5 days, but viremia can last as long as 12 days.

Mosquitos are awful this year - day and night. We've only been here a few days and we've heard of so many symptomatic dengue cases - including our housekeeper and two people in the villa next door. MarcheU is out of mosquito repellant and it's available at the pharmacie across from the airport.

Yea, I was shocked at how empty Marche U was -- we got the last Off! about 12 days ago and never saw it replenished. And then are friends got the "most powerful" one at the pharmacie a week ago -- at the time the last one, too. On the plus side, has the island ever been so green?

I hope TSA doesnt confiscate our skeeter racket from carry-on bag :confused:
Where does one purchase Mosquito Milk ? Is it thought to be highly effective against the vector biting you ? 😎

Maid at our first villa became infected last Tuesday. I sent her home as it was obvious she felt terrible. She is still sick and sadly spent a few days at the hospital Her husband had recently recovered as had a friend’s father.
We found some OFF at the Lorient monoprix and also super U when we first arrived. Aside from bug spray the markets have been very cleaned out in general— slim pickings on water, milk, soda, coffee. We have not suffered! There is plenty of wine and champagne ; )

No longer sold on island, Cass. We miss it. A product that worked well too.
In past few years I was able to order the “US” version called Net Effect via their website. When I went to reorder this summer it was sold out. I tried emailing to ask when/if they might be restocked and never received a reply.

Thank you for all the recommendations. I am heading to Alma today for Off. We are sitting here at the villa enjoying a nice breeze through the living area and still getting attacked by mosquitos. We've never experienced anything this bad. Anyone traveling down, bring your own mosquito repellant.
