Castrogonia is starting to look a lot like Egypt in the Book of Exodus chapters 7-12. One disaster after another, one plague after another. The only difference is that ancient Egypt was only struck with ten plagues, after which Pharaoh decided to free his Jewish slaves, while Castro, Inc. is determined not to free its Cuban slaves regardless of how many plagues devastate the land.
While the monster blaze in Matanzas raged, swarms of mosquitos kept spreading dengue fever at an alarming rate. And the Ministry of Truth will never reveal how many Cubans are infected or how many are being killed by this plague. But reports on social media indicate that this crisis is huge and totally out of control.
Tres Fotutos is no prophet, but it seems reasonable to expect that at some point one plague too many might cause relentlessly repressive Castro, Inc. to collapse. Maybe a hurricane could do it? Imagine that.

According to information on social networks, during July and so far in August, dengue has claimed the lives of at least nine people, four of them children.
The Vice Minister of Health reported that, last week, 17,534 samples were processed for the diagnosis of the disease with a positivity of 53.8%.
“There are many cases. In other years in which fumigation has been carried out and the basic or elementary work of fumigation and precaution against dengue has been carried out, there has been an epidemic and at this time the government says that there is not. We’ll see what the result will be,” denounced historian and independent journalist Boris González Arenas, a resident of the Cuban capital.
“The truth is that the statistics on the number of patients give me very little confidence. The manipulation of the number of patients by the Cuban government is very large and does not even have to reach the Department of Statistics, with the fact that there are no reagents in the polyclinics or with the fact that there are no tests, or the tests enough to determine if a patient who arrives with fever and headache actually has dengue; the data is already covered up or difficult to specify, ”he added.
Havana continues to register the highest number of dengue cases, followed by the provinces of Holguín, Guantánamo, Camagüey and the Isla de la Juventud Special Municipality.
The deputy director of the Provincial Center for Hygiene, Epidemiology and Microbiology of Las Tunas, Aldo Cortés González, explained to the state press that, of the 2,057 mosquito outbreaks identified in the last period, 98 percent belong to deposits inside homes. .
“The rivers are dry and dirty. The water is completely impure and on many occasions with mosquito larvae. That’s when it comes. That is why we have to collect water and store it, but we do not have the proper containers to store it because they are not sold in state stores. There are no hypochlorites to clean the water, not even the little fish that they gave us to put in the tanks. In other words, we do not have the conditions to store the water,” said opposition member Yolanda Carmenate, from Las Tunas.
“The number of mosquitoes inside the house is torture, let’s say a nightmare when you want to sleep. You can’t just sit or stand without moving, because they eat you alive and you can’t turn on the fan because there’s no electricity, “said Carmenate.
