Commonwealth Games about to start and 1st Case of Dengue Fever

First case of Dengue Fever confirmed in the athletes village just before the Opening Ceremony today and on the eve of the start of the Events.

Do you think this will see people pulling out at the last minute now? This whole thing has been a disaster and must be very damaging to India.

Dengue is an infectious disease caused by a virus. You can get it if an infected mosquito bites you. It is common in warm, wet areas of the world. Outbreaks occur in the rainy season. Dengue is rare in the United States.

Symptoms include a high fever, headaches, joint and muscle pain, vomiting and a rash. Most people with dengue recover within 2 weeks. Until then, drinking lots of fluids, resting and taking non-aspirin fever-reducing medicines might help. Sometimes dengue turns into dengue hemorrhagic fever, which causes bleeding from your nose, gums or under your skin. It can also become dengue shock syndrome, which causes massive bleeding and shock. These forms of dengue are life-threatening.

To lower your risk when traveling in dengue-prone countries

* Wear insect repellent with DEET
* Wear clothes that cover your arms, legs and feet
* Close unscreened doors and windows

all the problems they have had with building work not finished etc., they've put on a pretty good show so far. But I wouldn't knock it just yet, we've still got our Olympics opening ceremony to get through !

looking very nice... having watched the news recently I wouldnt have thought it would happen..

Now what do people this we will do for 2012.... lol
London bus and a firework!
