Swine flu affecting Cambridge and Ipswich
The most common reason for a high temperature in Sub-Saharan Africa is malaria, where one child dies every thirty seconds from the disease. Many developing countries are popular destinations for the UK student population but their requests for blood tests to eliminate malaria are stretching resources even further, especially in Africa.
There are tips to follow to minimize the chances of catching either illness. Official advice from The Foreign and Commonwealth is to avoid crowded pubs and clubs in an effort to stop the spread of swine flu and anti-malarials and insect repellents should always be used in malarous areas.
Here at The Travel Clinic we have been advising our travelers to always seek medical aid if they have a high temperature or think they have malaria as it is such a deadly disease, but we also are giving Tamiflu to travelers, which stops the swine flu virus replicating. We also emphasize to travelers the importance of getting a blood test carried out for malaria.
Tamiflu is available for travelers at a cost of £100 a box including a consultation and we have a wide range of insect repellents and anti-malarials available. If you would like to find out more, please contact us.
