Its been a week since Em was confined in the hospital because she had Dengue fever. I was my first time to see some one up close have dengue and take care of them. I had a classmate in Elementary school who died of dengue and that made me nervous of my girlfriend’s disease. Luckily, she’s better but she’s still in the hospital for observation.
The night before she had fever, we were together. She was fine then and feeling alright. She was cheerful as usual. But when it was late in the evening, she felt something already. I was guessing that she might have been bitten in the jeep. That was just my wild guess but could be a big probability.
I’m sure some of you guys have experience riding a mosquito-infested jeep. Now that is pretty scary. You never know where those little devils came from. It is obvious that we wouldn’t be able to distinguish if the jeep we are about to ride would have mosquitoes lurking around. But if you guys do, please be extra cautious. You might become a victim.
Other than personal precaution, jeepney drivers should monitor and make sure that their jeeps are clean and should have no disease-carrying creatures in them. A spray can of insecticide is cheaper than a person getting confined in a hospital for a week or so.
