There is at least one case of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever in our neighborhood and that's all it takes to get Centro de Salud out knocking on doors. Yesterday a woman came around looking for standing water. It surprised me because another person had been here less than a month ago. Sometimes it's 4-5 months between visits.
Today I had a guy ask if I wanted my yard sprayed. Since I had not heard of the Dengue case, he had no uniform, he didn't say it was free and he didn't try to identity himself ... I said no thanks. My neighbor just came around with the real story. Don't get many people here coming to your gate trying to sell you something but in Jocotepec you did and I got used to saying no. Usually the spraying is done from the street from a passing vehicle so coming on your property was a first.
