Exotic Holidays: Stings and Diseases

Exotic vacation? Well be careful because many nasty flying bugs can spoil your trip and even your health . Today we are going to talk to you about the different diseases that some mosquitoes can transmit to you.

Malaria occurs in more than 100 countries in the world, and one in two million people die from malaria each year. The best way to avoid malaria and other diseases such as West Nile virus or yellow fever is to try to keep mosquitoes as far away from you as possible. When you arrive at the accommodation you have reserved for your vacation , explore the room; the best thing is that you unpack the bed, shake the curtains and check the dark places.

If you have a special spray, spray it around the room and the air conditioning. When you leave the room and go for a walk, it is best to wear light colors , long pants and if possible long sleeves. You must be especially careful with your ankles when you sit, for example, in a restaurant. Many seasoned travelers only use chemicals in high-risk areas, but the choice is yours.

Areas with not too much risk are Egypt (except the Faiyum Oasis area) and Bali . There is high risk, for example, in some parts of Asia and Oceania and very high risk, for example, in sub-Saharan Africa , some parts of the Caribbean , the northern half of Latin America , and in the East areas such as Thailand and Cambodia . After finishing your trip, be careful if you notice any symptoms of illness such as fever or flu. Some diseases take time to develop.
