What else lurks?

Bangkok Post - - WORLD -

My sym­pa­thies to David Brown and his dengue at­tack (PostBag, Sept 7). I am just re­cov­er­ing from it too and slowly get­ting my stuff­ing back. Re­gard­ing the im­mu­ni­sa­tion is­sue, I feel the same way, but just how ef­fec­tive is it and how long does it last, given that there are four to five strains? David’s ob­ser­va­tion about cost vi­a­bil­ity for the dis­ad­van­taged is spot-on and pro­lif­er­at­ing mosquito pop­u­la­tions gen­er­ated by ex­tended rainy sea­sons, garbage pile-ups as well as nev­erend­ing ur­ban de­vel­op­ment projects are just ex­ac­er­bat­ing the sit­u­a­tion.

In­for­ma­tion pre­ven­tion cam­paigns are all very well, and help, but it only takes one un­lucky bite as we have ex­pe­ri­enced, and we are both old Thai­land hands with no re­lated prob­lems in the past. What else is lurk­ing out there? ROBIN
