Zika outbreak: Travel advice
CK1 - Thank you for the information regarding possible suspected cases of Zika in Aruba. Is there any updated status on tests being conducted at the Institues of Health in the Netherlands?
You are welcome, David Thoreau.
No, I have not seen any updates so far. But I will post them here if I do.
i think it is saying there are 4 confirmed cases.
it says.....All 4 were infected while on vacation in Venezuela or Brazil. One female, three male. All were at the tail end of the virus, so not considered infectious at this time.

Andrea is that based on your translator or you translating it? I read it more like there is no cases confirmed in Aruba, but I am probably wrong because I can't figure out what the 4 would reference to outside of potential cases....That said, I have zero idea what language I am actually reading, lol. The first part seem to be about 4 possible cases but later I thought it said none were contracted on Aruba... I am guessing this is written in papiamento, which I think I understand better verbally than written. I have spent to much time in Aruba (joking) when I am able to actually figure out what the locals are talking about when they speak....I typically understand what is said, or the general gist of it when I am playing cards with people from Aruba. I have been asked many times if I speak the language, and of course that is NO, lol.
