For the question in the title on a visitor questionnaire if the answer is yes.  Then which countries are a problem? And what do you do if they have visited a dodgy country?  What is the further line of questioning and what action do you need to take?

Hi Simon,

 

As to yr first query, one presumably needs criteria for "dodgy". Other than a gut feeling perhaps.

 

One possible (risk-based?) WHO concept here (see Pg5/42) but data is 10 years old -

 

Attached File  Sanitation_Presentation.pdf   3.36MB   19 downloads

 

Travel insurers should surely be a likely source but i found hard data elusive, eg comments like - policies may not hold for countries recommended not to travel by the FO.

 

Charles

 

Logically, the details must surely hv some relevance also, eg In the City / In the Jungle ?


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

Then which countries are a problem?

 

I usually use information from the WHO there is quite a lot of useful information on their website and some interactive maps.

 

There is also useful information on regions and updates on outbreaks here

 

Regards,

 

Tony
