I’m in Bangkok and theres a nasty Dengue outbreak spreading at the moment. I’ve been unable to get clear information on if the current outbreak is one particular strain of the four DENV-1,DENV-2,DENV-3,DENV 4 or a mixture. Anyone know where I can find that out? I had dengue fever about 12 years ago which I contracted on Koh Pha Ngan (south Thailand). If I catch a second strain it can be much more dangerous (dengue hemorrhagic fever is a common complication). But I’m probably still immune to the strain I already got.
Can I be tested for anti-bodies after this long? Is it worth it? Yeah I’m slapping on the repellent and I can leave town for a while if it gets really bad.
