I told you so

If you have read my blog before, you might remember that I have previously mentioned dengue fever which is prevalent in Thailand during the rainy season. And here comes some news about this nasty disease:

There were more than 60,000 dengue fever patients from January to October and 82 people were dead, according to public health ministry.” as the news says.

This was the reason that we had to learn at school about which diseases occur in each season e.g. dengue fever is endemic in the rainy season and food poisoning is easy to catch in the summer. Both are common in a tropical country like Thailand. Any visitor wishing to go to the land of smiles would be wise to check some basic information about these local complaints. I suppose nobody wants to have a bad time in a foreign country, do they?
