Coconuts Bali Health

The health section of Coconuts Bali covers a range of stories, many of them stemming from mosquito-borne diseases—developments within the ‘hottest’ tropical diseases (e.g. dengue, zika virus) on the island. Bali has invited the public to take up with the “War on Mosquitoes,” no joke. Those nasty little biters are responsible for so much sickness and suffering on this island.
