Overseas travel generally has health warnings, however with the recent development of the avian influenza, H5N1, being able to cross infect humans, new warnings have needed to be issued. The type A influenza that has been isolated in poultry and wild bird populations around Asia and Europe is transferred via nasal secretions, saliva, and feces of infected birds. Recommendations are to avoid areas where bird populations are known to inhabit, ensure all bird meat is properly cooked before consuming, and maintain good hygiene if unavoidably coming into contact with birds.
