Stay vigilant and stay healthy while you journey Perpetual Travellers. Here are the Health Risks for Week 23:

Congo (DRC)
SPECIAL ADVISORY: Ebola in Equateur Province
Two more cases confirmed; Angola closes its border with DRC in Malanje province. An Ebola outbreak has been declared in Bikoro, Equateur Province, as well as the provincial capital city of Mbandaka. Ebola is spread by contact with the blood or other bodily fluids (especially vomit and diarrhoea) of infected or dead people. Healthcare workers, household members and people participating in traditional funeral practices (touching the body) are at high risk. International SOS is monitoring the situation closely. Defer non-essential travel to the Bikoro/Ikoko-Impenge, Ingende, Iboko and Mbandaka until outbreak control measures have been definitively established. In addition, avoid direct contact with sick people. Do not participate in traditional funerals.
