Default Dengue fevor

Just a warning. We just returned from Aruba on Jan27 and my husband came down with the dengue fevor.
He was in ICU for 10 days and still is in the hospital.
So make sure every one takes percautions
I didn't see an insect the whole time I was there, but he did.
Bring the bug spray and use it.

It was confirmed by testing that it is fact the Dengue fevor. We stayed at the Marriott Surf Club and as I said I never saw an insect.
The mosquitoes that carry it are out in the day time not at night.
We never went into any grassey areas.
So please take your spray and use it in the day time.
I love Aruba. Be safe
