Dominican officials: threat of malaria ‘virtually non-existent’ (02/10/2005)

By Gay Nagle Myers

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic -- The threat of malaria now is "virtually non-existent" in the Dominican Republic, and no new cases have been reported since Dec. 5, according to the island’s Dept. of Tourism.



Luis Simo, deputy minister of tourism for international affairs, said the country did experience "17 cases of malaria [but no deaths] from September through November 2004 as a result of heavy flooding from hurricane Jeanne in September."



Most of the malaria cases were centered in the Punta Cana and Puerto Plata areas.

do not rent a car there, if you happen to get into an accident, it is automatically your fault and they will put you in jail asap for up to 3 months or more
