Zeka Virus Update
2/16/2016 - By St Martin Reservation Center
Many guests are inquiring about the Zika Virus. As of this date we only know of 1 confirmed case of the Zika Virus on SXM, however, we’ve been told that the government is spraying the island on a routine basis and we’ve had folks come back to say they saw very few mosquitoes during their entire stay.
What is Zika virus?
Zika virus disease is a mosquito-borne illness. The most common symptoms of Zika virus disease are a mild fever, skin rashes, muscle and joint pain, and conjunctivitis. These symptoms normally last for 2-7 days. Seek medical care if symptoms worsen.
