The drought not only has prices going up, but there according to this article there was also a rise in the number of cases of dengue fever in Januari.   Dengue can be dangerous and in some cases even deadly... The main thing is to keep eating and stay hydrated to prevent the disease to become hemorragic (which is the dangerous version) During a speach, given by a Brazilian physician for the International club (INC) in /rio de Janeiro, the doctor mentioned that it is not advised to take aspirine. Better is to resort to Paracetamol / Ibuprofen...  Check also this link for more info on Dengue fever

I had dengue last year... not nice. I wanted to die for 10 days. 


I heard that there are 4 types of dengue and once you get one kind, you become immune for it so you can theoretically get dengue 4 times in your life... Is that correct? 


cheers
