  • Association between Australian Hajj Pilgrims awareness of MERS-CoV, and
           their compliance with preventive measures and exposure to camels
    • Authors: Alqahtani, A. S; Wiley, K. E, Mushta, S. M, Yamazaki, K, BinDhim, N. F, Heywood, A. E, Booy, R, Rashid, H.
      Abstract: Through a prospective cohort study the relationship between travellers’ awareness of MERS-CoV, and compliance with preventive measures and exposure to camels was evaluated among Australian Hajj pilgrims who attended Hajj in 2015. Only 28% of Australian Hajj pilgrims were aware of MERS-CoV in Saudi Arabia. Those who were aware of MERS-CoV were more likely to receive recommended vaccines [odds ratio (OR) 3.1, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.5–5.9, P < 0.01], but there was no significant difference in avoiding camels or their raw products during Hajj between those who were aware of MERS-CoV and those who were not (OR 1.2, 95% CI: 0.3–5.2, P = 0.7). Hajj pilgrims’ awareness is reflected in some of their practices but not in all.

  • Incidence rate and risk factors for giardiasis and strongyloidiasis in
           returning UK travellers
    • Authors: Takaoka, K; Gourtsoyannis, Y, Hart, J. D, Armstrong, M, Daniel, A, Mewse, E, Phillips, D, Bailey, R. L.
      Abstract: Background: Few studies have investigated incidence rate and risk factors for giardiasis and strongyloidiasis in returning UK travellers. The clinical presentations of these two diseases are often similar and difficult to distinguish. This study was conducted to investigate the incidence rate and the risk factors for symptomatic giardiasis and strongyloidiasis in returned tropical travellers. Methods: We retrospectively analysed 3306 consecutive attendances presenting to the emergency clinic at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in London, the UK from September 2008 to May 2010. Odds ratios between the diagnoses and patient variables were analysed by logistic regression. Results: Giardiasis was diagnosed in 92/3306 cases (2.8%, proportionate morbidity), and the incidence rate per 1000 person-months was 12.5. Multivariate analysis with logistic regression revealed that Caucasian ethnicity (adjusted odds ratio (aOR): 2.37, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.12–5.03, P value = 0.025), travel length ≥32 days (aOR: 2.63, 95%CI: 1.43–4.83, P = 0.002), travelling to South or South East Asia (aOR: 4.90, 95%CI: 2.03–11.8, P < 0.001, aOR: 3.36, 95%CI: 1.43–7.93, P = 0.006), afebrile presentation (aOR: 2.14, 95%CI: 1.14–4.03, P = 0.018), and presenting with gastro-intestinal symptoms (aOR: 14.6, 95%CI: 6.08–35.0, P < 0.001) were all associated with giardiasis. In contrast, strongyloidiasis was found only in 0.94% (proportionate morbidity) of the cases (31/3306), and the incidence rate per 1000 person-months was 3.1. Multivariate analysis revealed that male sex (aOR: 3.05, 95%CI: 1.36–6.85, P = 0.007), and non-Caucasian ethnicity (aOR: 2.69, 95%CI: 1.32–5.49, P = 0.007) were associated with strongyloidiasis. Conclusions: The incidence rate and risk factors for both infectious diseases were identified. The results of this study might guide clinicians to make more accurate and timely diagnoses in returned tropical travellers.

  • A non-pharmaceutical form of Artemisia annua is not effective in
           preventing Plasmodium falciparum malaria
    • Authors: Lagarce, L; Lerolle, N, Asfar, P, Le Govic, Y, Laine-Cessac, P, de Gentile, L.
      Abstract: Non-pharmaceutical forms of Artemisia annua (a Chinese plant containing artemisinin) are used by some travellers who believe these products are safer than anti-malarial drugs. We report two cases of severe Plasmodium falciparum malaria requiring hospitalization in an Intensive Care Unit following prophylaxis with non-pharmaceutical A. annua in French travellers.

  • Early detection of Zika virus infection among travellers from areas of
           ongoing transmission in China
    • Authors: Zhang, J; Jin, X, Zhu, Z, Huang, L, Liang, S, Xu, Y, Liao, R, Zhou, L, Zhang, Y, Wilder-Smith, A.
      Abstract: Nine imported Zika virus (ZIKV) infections (four through temperature monitoring and epidemiological investigation at entry and five by active surveillance tracking of index case contacts during follow-up; from Venezuela [n = 5], Samoa [n = 3] and both Samoa and Fiji [n = 1]) were detected in mainland China from February 1 to 29, 2016. The minimal incubation period lasted 5.2 days, with mean lag time to diagnosis of 2.6 days. Diagnosis relied on positive real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction for ZIKV RNA in serum (n = 7), urine (n = 4) or saliva (n = 3), respectively. All cases recovered rapidly without serious complications.

           co-infection after a five-day journey in India
    • Authors: Zammarchi, L; Antonelli, A, Lapini, M, Prato, M, Farese, A, Rossolini, G. M, Bartoloni, A.
      Abstract: We present a case of concurrent infections by Campylobacter jejuni, Giardia intestinalis and Hepatitis E virus acquired during a 5-days travel to India by an Italian traveller. Professionals responsible for pre- and post-travel care should underline food and water precautions and prescribe an adequate diagnostic work-up in symptomatic patients.

  • Adverse event reports following yellow fever vaccination, 2007-13
    • Authors: Lindsey, N. P; Rabe, I. B, Miller, E. R, Fischer, M, Staples, J. E.
      Abstract: Background: Yellow fever (YF) vaccines have been available since the 1930s and are generally considered safe and effective. However, rare reports of serious adverse events (SAE) following vaccination have prompted the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices to periodically expand the list of conditions considered contraindications and precautions to vaccination. Methods: We describe adverse events following YF vaccination reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) from 2007 through 2013 and calculate age- and sex-specific reporting rates of all SAE, anaphylaxis, YF vaccine-associated neurologic disease (YEL-AND) and YF vaccine-associated viscerotropic disease (YEL-AVD). Results: There were 938 adverse events following YF vaccination reported to VAERS from 2007 through 2013. Of these, 84 (9%) were classified as SAEs for a rate of 3.8 per 100 000 doses distributed. Reporting rates of SAEs increased with increasing age with a rate of 6.5 per 100 000 in persons aged 60–69 years and 10.3 for ≥70 years. The reporting rate for anaphylaxis was 1.3 per 100 000 doses distributed and was highest in persons ≤18 years (2.7 per 100 000). Reporting rates of YEL-AND and YEL-AVD were 0.8 and 0.3 per 100 000 doses distributed, respectively; both rates increased with increasing age. Conclusions: These findings reinforce the generally acceptable safety profile of YF vaccine, but highlight the importance of continued physician and traveller education regarding the risks and benefits of YF vaccination, particularly for older travellers.

  • A comparison of compliance rates with anti-vectorial protective measures
           during travel to regions with dengue or chikungunya activity, and regions
           endemic for Plasmodium falciparum malaria
    • Authors: Lalani, T; Yun, H, Tribble, D, Ganesan, A, Kunz, A, Fairchok, M, Schnaubelt, E, Fraser, J, Mitra, I, Kronmann, K. C, Burgess, T, Deiss, R. G, Riddle, M. S, Johnson, M. D.
      Abstract: Background. There is limited information on compliance rates with anti-vectorial protective measures (AVPMs) during travel to countries with risk of dengue and chikungunya. We evaluated differences in mosquito exposures, and factors associated with AVPM compliance in travellers going to countries where the principal mosquito-borne infectious disease threat is falciparum malaria and those where risk of dengue or chikungunya predominates. Methods. Department of Defence beneficiaries with planned travel to regions where the predominant mosquito-borne infection is falciparum malaria, and those with predominantly dengue or chikungunya risk, were included. Regions were divided into three groups: ‘high-risk falciparum malaria’, ‘low-risk falciparum malaria’ and ‘chikungunya/dengue risk’. Demographics, trip characteristics, arthropod exposure and AVPM compliance were captured using pre- and post-travel surveys. Skin repellent compliance was defined as self-reported use, categorized as ‘often/every day’. A logistic regression model was used to estimate factors associated with AVPM compliance. Results. 183 (9%), 185 (9%) and 149 (7%) travelled to high and low falciparum malaria risk regions, and chikungunya/dengue risk regions, respectively. Overall, 53% (95% CI: 48–57%) and 16% (95% CI: 12–19%) were compliant with repellent use on skin and clothing, respectively. Daytime bites were reported more frequently in chikungunya/dengue risk regions than high malaria risk regions (37% vs. 10%), while night time bites were frequently in high malaria risk regions (53% vs 20%; P < 0.001). Compliance with skin repellents was associated with female gender [RR: 1.54 (95% CI: 1.05–2.28)], observing mosquitoes during travel [RR: 2.77 (95% CI: 1.76–4.36)] and travel during the rainy season [RR: 2.45 (95% CI: 1.66–3.71)]). Conclusions. Poor AVPM compliance was observed in the overall cohort. Compliance with skin repellent use was associated with female gender, observing mosquitoes and travelling during the rainy season, and was not associated with the risk of malaria or chikungunya/dengue at the travel destination.

  • A cluster of three cases of trichinellosis linked to bear meat consumption
           in the Arctic
    • Authors: Dupouy-Camet, J; Yera, H, Dahane, N, Bouthry, E, Kapel, C. M. O.
      Abstract: We report here three cases of trichinellosis due to polar bear meat consumption in East Greenland. In the past 20 years, 31 cases of trichinellosis have been reported in French travellers to the Arctic (North Quebec, Nunavut and Greenland) who consumed undercooked meat from black, brown, or polar bears. If local communities are increasingly becoming aware of the risk of trichinellosis, travellers visiting regions where bear meat is consumed should be informed of the risk of eating raw or non-heat-processed meats.

  • Norovirus in a United States virgin islands resort: outbreak
           investigation, response, and costs
    • Authors: Leshem, E; Gastanaduy, P. A, Trivedi, T, Laufer Halpin, A, Pringle, J, Lang, F, Gregoricus, N, Vinje, J, Behravesh, C. B, Parashar, U, Hall, A. J.
      Abstract: Background: During 8–20 April 2012, an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness occurred among guests and employees of a resort hotel in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. We describe outbreak characteristics, and estimate indirect (non-medical) costs to travellers. Methods: Employees who met the case definition were interviewed and provided stool samples. Samples were tested for norovirus by real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction. Guests were asked to complete a survey aimed to identify and characterize cases, and to estimate quality adjusted vacation days (QAVD) lost. Results: Overall, 66 persons (20 employees and 46 guests) met the probable case definition. The first reported illness onset occurred in a hotel employee on 8 April, while the first reported onset in a guest occurred on 13 April. An employee suffered a public diarrhoea incident on 13 April in the central kitchen, followed by illness onset in the next day among employees that assisted with the clean-up. On 15 April, after 10 guests reported ill, the hotel implemented an outbreak response protocol instructing ill employees to take a 3-day leave, and obtain medical clearance prior to resuming work. Ill guests were advised to self-isolate, and rapid cleaning of public areas and guest rooms where suspected contamination occurred was implemented. We estimated that 65 QAVDs were lost by 43 guests (1.5 days/guest). Using an approximate cost of $450 per vacation day, we estimated indirect illness cost at $675 per guest case. Seven (64%) of 11 cases’ stool specimens were positive for norovirus genotype GII.4 Den Haag. Conclusions: A norovirus outbreak in a resort hotel resulted in substantial indirect costs and loss of vacation days to ill travellers. We recommend outbreak control measures including exclusion of ill employees, until ≥48–72 h after resolution of symptoms, self-isolation of ill guests and appropriate cleaning in hotel-associated norovirus outbreaks.

  • Unpredictable checks of yellow fever vaccination certificates upon arrival
           in Tanzania
    • Abstract: Background Yellow fever (YF) is a mosquito-borne disease, which can be prevented by vaccination. While YF vaccination (YFV) is not generally recommended for travellers to Tanzania, proof of YFV may be required upon arrival. In April 2013, the World Health Organization concluded that one dose of YFV confers lifelong protection and countries have started to adapt their entry requirements. The traveller’s consultant has to balance the risk of YFV and the risk of encountering problems when entering a country without a valid YFV, especially because countries are slowly implementing the requirements. Methods We performed a survey among 421 travellers to Tanzania with a pre-travel consultation at the Travel Clinic of the University of Zurich about their experiences with YFV certificate inspections upon arrival in Tanzania between January and November 2015. Results There were three main findings: (i) most vaccine card checks were done while crossing the land border of Tanzania. Inspections were frequently conducted at Arusha airport, less often in Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar. In the latter a significantly larger percentage of individuals arriving by ferry/boat were checked than those arriving by plane. (ii) Checks appeared to be non-systematic. They were also performed in travellers who did not enter Tanzania from a YF-endemic country. No seasonal or daytime pattern could be identified; the thoroughness of checks varied widely. (iii) In the case of travel without valid YFV, an exemption certificate was always accepted. In travellers with neither a valid YFV nor an exemption certificate, travellers reported forced YF vaccination and fines before entry was granted. Conclusions We recommend YFV or a YF exemption certificate for all travellers to Tanzania until further notice. The decision of whether to vaccinate against YF or to issue an exemption should be based on exposure risk to YF infection in other countries during travel.

  • Travel medicine physician adherence to guidelines for the emergency self
           treatment of malaria
    • Authors: Flaherty, G. T; Walden, L. M, Townend, M.
      Abstract: Few studies have examined emergency self treatment (EST) antimalarial prescribing patterns. 110 physician-members of the Travel Medicine Society of Ireland and British Global and Travel Health Association participated in this study. There was a trend towards the prescription of EST for travel to remote low-risk malaria areas; for long-term residents living in low-risk areas; and for frequent travellers to low-risk areas. This study provides insights into the use of EST in travellers’ malaria.
