  • Use bottled water for cleaning teeth, avoid ice, avoid salads, peel your fruits and avoid uncooked foods.

(D) Anti-Malarial Medication

Malaria is a common and serious tropical disease transmitted by mosquito bites. Poor compliance with anti malarial tablets is the major reason for malaria in travellers.
Adverse effects to anti-malarial tablets are common, but most are minor.

You should remember that malaria tablets don’t provide full protection, so malaria prevention precautions are important such as:
 

  1. Preventing mosquito bites by covering up with clothing and using insect repellent.
  2. Comply with anti-malarial tablets.
  3. Fever or flu should be investigated as soon as possible.

(E) Avoid Dangerous Sports & Activities
