Good plan! Kind of like the job of King's Taster in ye olde days.
I was holidaying in Thailand just a few months ago, where there was
(apparently ) a very high incidence this year. Compare the above
story's figures with Thailand's 56,427 cases since January ;)
BTW -- from reading that article it looks like the current outbreak is not
the haemorrhagic fever, only the not-so-nasty "just plain dengue fever",
which just causes "intense headaches, vomiting, muscle and joint aches",
without the uncontrollable bleeding. So that's OK then.
