Taiwan issues travel warning for visitors to Myanmar


Taipei | 05 August 2019 | lrb.munda | Get In lamka

Taiwan’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued a level-one travel health notice (practice usual precautions) for chikungunya fever and a level-two notice (practice enhanced precautions) for the Zika virus for people traveling to Myanmar, the Taipei Times reported.

Twenty-five chikungunya fever cases have been confirmed this year, including the first indigenous case ever reported in Taiwan.

Most of these cases were brought in from countries in Southeast Asia, and more than half were from Myanmar, the CDC said, adding that the genome sequence of the chikungunya virus strain found in the single indigenous case was similar to the cases from Myanmar.
