Fans of TLC's “Counting On” are slamming Jill Duggar (Dillard) after traveling with her husband and 22 month old son to Central America to do missionary work there. Jill revealed on her blog that although the family has only been in Central America for a little over a week, there are already many different health scares that have plagued them.

“The first few days we were here, amidst the settling in and busy schedules, Israel (the Duggar/Dillard's 22 month old son) and I were battling colds and coughs and Israel developed a low grade fever, which we quickly noticed was a result of an eye infection.” However, fans didn't think it was a very good idea that Jill and Derrick were traveling to Central America at all, seeing that Jill is pregnant with the couple's second child.
The family is doing mission work in El Salvador, which is a country that has been hit hard by the Zika virus. The country recommends that women who live there wait until 2018 to get pregnant due to the Zika virus. Fans of the show have been sounding off, saying that it was not safe for Jill and Derrick to travel to the country, and that Jill is putting not only her own health at risk, but the health of her whole family as well.
