Regarding emergency visits to the Louis Constant Fleming hospital center, ten were recorded in week 26 and five in week 27. In Saint -Barthélemy, the weekly number of consultations, for three weeks with a general practitioner, oscillates between three and six evocative cases. The Antilles are strongly affected by this epidemic: in Guadeloupe, 9700 cases have been recorded and 15.670 cases in Martinique. _EH
