Pink Eye Epidemic Quieting Down
It seems like the epidemic that struck Saipan about a month ago is starting to quiet down. We're still seeing a steady trickle of cases, but nothing like the huge numbers we were seeing at first. Here is the worst case I saw. Yes, that stuff on the left side is the conjunctiva (the white tissue on the surface of the eye -- here really really red) actually coming out from between the eyelids. She couldn't close her eye because of the tissue hanging out.
