Report: Mystery Virus Hits Luxury Resorts in Turks and Caicos

According to the Turks and Caicos Sun, several resorts in the tourism belt of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos have been hit by a mysterious illness, characterized by diarrhea and vomiting, that has sickened scores of visitors.

The outbreak, which was first reported about a week ago, may have contributed to the death of an elderly tourist who was found lifeless in his hotel room. Autopsy results have not yet confirmed the official cause of death.

According to the report, officials from Government, tourism, hotel and health sectors have gone into a state of high alert, embarking on massive public awareness and public relations campaigns to ensure tourists and visitors alike that the Turks and Caicos Islands is still a safe destination, despite an “increase in diarrhoea and vomiting in some resorts on Providenciales.”
