As usual, get rid of stagnant water puddles, use mosquito repellant and the usual. Wife was the last in the family to get it in 2018, she was a bit tired for a couple of weeks, but the platelet count came up by itself and she recovered. Some aren't as lucky.

Was one of the reasons I left Thailand. Had it twice and the second time wow! Took me months to recover (never went to hospital, what an idiot). A battle I faught hard to beat. Used to have really thick hair, now quite thin. Changed the way I lived, long trousers, boots, vest under my shirts. Scared the hell out of me and makes malaria feel like a sunday picnic.

They should ban alcohol consumption during rainy season as that's when people are most likely to let down their guard.

Had giant tall planters FULL of water at my GH, one got bit, then another, back to back, ppl were fleeing that place. I thought it was food poisoning and waited until I felt my kidneys aching, lost 10lbs in 5 days and just had zero energy for weeks, laid in bed while others partied..sucked...but bed rest, Tylenol, hydration, and tons of rest finally got me back.....depends on how well you were to begin with as some recovered quicker...but was hard at time cos of full body rash and the slightest touch sent waves of pain thru ur body..crazy stuff

 

I was a newbie to LOS and recall a few cute nurses came into my hospital room to give me a "bath"..I was freaked out and managed to drag myself into the shower. To this day that was one of my main regrets...dang
