    Dengue is always a problem in Chiang Mai in the rainy season. The local hospital in Mae Jo fills up with patients every year even though the district carries out a mosquito eradication.

    Having an infected mouth and hand is bad enough, but infected toot is the worst.

    The incubation period averages 3-6 days. Coxsackievirus infection is highly contagious. During epidemics, the virus is spread by horizontal transmission from child to child and from mother to fetus. Transmission occurs by means of direct contact with nasal and/or oral secretions, fecal material, or aerosolized droplets in a fecal-oral or oral-oral route.

    What do you expect in Thailand where people not only rarely or ever wash their hands with soap and water but they use their bare hand (without toilet paper) to wipe themselves.
