          I live in Tucson and a freind of mine had called the health
dept. to find out about dengue fever, her house was filled with mosquitos
this summer and she and her daughters were repetedly sick. The health
department told her although  dengue vector mosquitos have been found here
no one has been discovered to have it. She asked if they would check her
mosquitos or if she could be tested and she was told over the phone she
didn't have it, and no they would not check her mosquitos.    No wonder no
cases have been found.  SMHR
