"When possible, take a shower with lots of soap and water.do not scrub or scratch the skin". Blow your nose, and wipe out your ears and eyelids, it says.

Like other Guam residents, Sokala has been inundated with text messages from friends on the "mainland" - islanders' term for the continental United States - asking how she was doing.
