The virus is Malaria. Precautions should be taken prior to

arriving Punta Cana areas.

I don't believe it is Malaria, it can't be transmitted from person to person, only by blood or female mosquito bite. This virus is from the food or cleanliness, sanitation, not washing hands or something but it is nasty. Almost everyone in our resort had it for 24hrs and we just returned on Jan 11th. Resort states it is a virus brought over from Germany, I say Nine.

All this scaremongering. The sensible thing to do is to see your GP and get a stool sample done to ascertain the nature of the illness.
