Travel Precautions to Help Lower Infection Rates
William D. Jones
Introduction
With an MD from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, William
D. Jones is an OK-based medical practitioner and the secretary and
treasurer of the Oklahoma College of Occupational and Environmental
Medicine. As a specialist in occupational and preventive medicine,
William D. Jones is interested in practical ways people can lower
infection rates in their homes, work, and society.
Infections result from bacteria, viruses, and parasites that enter the body and
disrupt normal functioning. A common way for infections to spread across
geographic locations is through travelers. However, precautions in times of an
outbreak can help mitigate the spread.
Perhaps the most important precaution is for travelers to receive immunizations
before a trip. Travelers also should avoid getting tattoos or injection while on
foreign trips because people in some parts of the world reuse tattoo equipment
and needles.
In countries with yellow fever and malaria-carrying mosquitoes, travelers should
use an insect repellent containing Deet, a brand of diethyltoluamide. Travelers
also should avoid all drinks that are not bottled, including water, and try not to
consume dairy products due to lack of milk pasteurization.
