28 cases of Dengue Fever have recently been diagnosed in Key West Florida bringing a rapid response from the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District to bring the outbreak under control.  In case you don’t quite recall the details of Dengue, it’s called Bone Break Fever because your bones ache with such intensity that you feel like they have been broken.  SO, for-warned is for-armed, load up on the lots of insect repellent before venturing into the Keys this summer!  Hopefully this is an isolated occurrence and the mosquitoes that spread the virus will be elasticated quickly.
