"We're carefully monitoring ongoing investigations by Dominican authorities into diverse most serene deaths of USA electorate within the Dominican Republic", a spokesperson for the US Embassy within the Dominican Republic told Industry Insider in an announcement.

"The scuttlebutt is it's just a mystery", said Sherri Burk a travel Coordinator for Ocean Enterprises Travel. Business Insider reached out to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which said that it is not involved in the investigations and has not received a request for help from authorities in the Dominican Republic. Travel agents say it's not uncommon to have a warning for travelers, but in this case there is no solid advice for would-be vacationers.

"We want the truth to prevail", García said. "Although official reports indicated that the incidents are not linked, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has taken steps based on the feedback of guests to improve experience and safety improvement in the future".

According to a new survey conducted by ASTA, almost 60% of travel advisors have cancelled trips for US clients to the Dominican Republic in the last week.

Industry Insider spoke with 5 Americans who said they fell unwell whereas visiting the Dominican Republic nowadays. "There is no such thing as mysterious deaths in the Dominican Republic".

The deaths have left some Americans wondering if they should cancel upcoming trips to the Caribbean nation.

Flight bookings to the Dominican Republic for July and August decreased by 59 percent compared to a year ago, according to ForwardKeys. But Quade said the volume of the reports is striking, especially considering the fact that some reviewers were citing cases where multiple members of their party fell ill. "Why would I do that if I had any concerns?" he asked. "I will fight for that to happen, for them to get to the bottom of it". Despite this statement, families of the victims, think there is something off about these deaths.

"I'm concerned about any death and my condolences go out to the families", he said. "I did not know, to be honest with you".

Louisiana woman Susan Simoneaux is the tenth USA person to die after vacationing in the Dominican Republic.
