    The recent epidemic is dengue which can affect anyone since it is spread by mosquitoes. If you are not sure about the place you are living in then you can leave town for a while until the epidemic is gone but otherwise you have to be wary of mosquitoes. You can also seek the help of the local health department in the town of city for safety measures.

    It’s not only the dengue virus that is presently a health problem but also the polio and pneumonia. With the last, it was maybe due to the excessive pollution in the city. Nevertheless, even foreigners should be wary of such health issues so they can prevent or avoid to be contaminated. It is difficult to get sick when you are abroad.
