World Health Organization warning issued for South Africa
So I just got a message about the 'Rift Valley' fever outbreak in South Africa
Here's the link to the WHO's website about the announcement.
Hopefully, the panick doesn't spread like wildfire similar to last year's swine flu H1N1 epidemic in Mexico City as that will be a real blow for South Africa a month before the tournament starts.
I'm not an epidemiologist but I guess this rules out safaris and/or camping?
WHO advises no international travel restriction to or from South Africa. However, WHO recommends that visitors to South Africa, especially those intending to visit farms and/or game reserves, avoid coming into contact with animal tissues or blood, avoid drinking unpasteurized or uncooked milk or eating raw meat. All travellers should take appropriate precautions against mosquito bites (use of mosquito nets, insect repellents).
