Readers' letter: Dengue fever is also rife in Saint-Martin!


“I live at Anse Marcel, in Port Caraibes located right next to the lagoon. My partner, myself, and several neighbors contracted dengue.

My partner and my neighbor had quite severe dengue (resembling hepatic dengue according to the doctor seen yesterday). They are both on an infusion for 3 days. So I called the ARS (Regional Health Agency) this morning to ask them to intervene but no agent is available! All sources of standing water need to be eliminated, car wrecks are being removed right now which is a very good thing, but the neighborhoods are not being treated. I do not understand why nothing is done in this direction. Dengue is quite severe this year. Several neighbors are in the same situation as us. It is also high time that the health authorities react!
