Well what was there left to do..? oh yes , catch Zika virus.
The crew of Enterprise has caught Zika.
We went to the Dr. Jenny Isaacs today – Anne and I… both have a rash; pains; hot eyes…etc etc
She agreed we have Zika. http://www.cdc.gov/zika/
The only remedy is lots of water, and paracetamol for pains – not Ibruprofen – forgot why…. She said symptoms will subside after a week. Mine are on the way out already – Anne’s are more recent so her rash is getting more pronounced – luckily not on her face or neck – just all over everything else.
Two other similar infections in the area, are
– Chikungunya https://www.cdc.gov/chikungunya/ and
– Dengue Fever http://www.cdc.gov/dengue/
Both are more virulent and will recur over a long period….
Apparently it isn’t taken that seriously here unless you are pregnant. Luckily I have avoided that malady, and so too has Anne.
It’s carried by mosquito. It’s not a contagious disease between people. Once you get the rash it’s on the way out. Your body then is able to defend against any future infection.
Zika – should not recur…but in a few cases there is evidence that you may develop Guillain-Barré syndrome….oh happy days….
