More Cuban Dengue Damage Control
The junta has stepped up its propaganda on dengue fever to make it appear that they are on top of the situation so as to ease the fears of the tourists. They issue these stories about how wonderful Cuba is at fighting dengue fever but never say how that could be. Propaganda like this never addresses the real cause behind the many dengue fever outbreaks that Cuba has experienced since Castro violently grabbed power 48 years ago - filth and squalor. The junta cannot even afford to haul away the trash that holds the water which breeds the mosquitoes carrying dengue. They still have not contain outbreaks in a number of areas inside Cuba but you won't hear about that. In fact they put some doctors in the gulag for decades just for admitting that there was a dengue fever outbreak last year. And if the dengue doesn't do you tourists in then the bug spray they are choking the air with trying to stop it surely will.
