23 Dengue Fever Cases Reported in S. China Province

South China's Guangdong Province had reported 23 cases of dengue fever by July 16, according to sources with the Guangdong Provincial Health Department.

All of the cases were reported in Guangzhou, capital of the province.

The main symptoms of dengue fever, a disease transmitted by mosquitoes, are high fever, muscle pain and headache.

Local government and health departments have adopted a series of measures to eliminate Aedes mosquito breeding grounds and publicize methods for preventing the disease from spreading in the region.

Dengue Fever is not uncommon in China. Particularly in the south.

However, if you prefer to wear your tinfoil suit...lol

In all honesty though, it does seem kind of suspicious that everything seems to keep coming from the GZ area.

Well ... I don't know about the tinfoil hat, but it just seems interesting to me that China seems to be having all these disease outbreaks. I'm sure our intel is aware they are conducting bio experiments.

You need to have an understanding of that area of China to know why it's so prone to disease. China is one of the most densely populated countries in the world, with 329 people per square mile. That compares to 72 people per square mile in the U.S.

The living conditions in rural China are still primative. Sanitation is a concept that's yet to be followed in daily practice. Most places in China still use a squat toilet.

That region is also in the tropical zone, so it's prone to the worst kinds of parasitic mosquito-born diseases known to man.

Considering that all three of these elements are present in that one small area of southern China, it's not surprising in the least to see so much disease there.

Thank you so much for that info. I have trouble just keeping up with my own county, state, etc. I am aware of the extreme poverty in certain parts of China. When added to extreme weather conditions - that explains a lot.

Did our government pay our soldiers when they tested LSD on them?

work with me here...(it was a little sarcasm)

If the Chinese government were going to do something like that, they would do it to the people in reeducation camps.

I don't think that the Chinese government is compensating their popluation for undergoing secret bio tests.

I think it has more to do with the living conditions and their habits of hygeine or lack thereof.
