Myanmar - chapter 4 - 2018 Yellow book | Travelers' healthcare

Myanmar has a mixture of old and new cultures. Almost all of the approximately 5 million travellers who crossed the state in 2016 visited the classical gold temple in Rangoon, Burma's largest town. Out of the country's more than 56 million inhabitants, about two-thirds can either read or write it.

It averages 27°C (80°F) during the arid November-February and Yangon and South Burma during the outbreak. Traditional meals such as dumplings (rice pasta in seafood soup), curry and salad attract many guests, but care must be taken with regard to nutrition. Sewerage disposal and accessibility to safe waters are improved, but in alternative cities and countryside they may be insufficient.

Travellers to Burma should be aware of common vaccinations, which include flu and flu vaccinations. In Burma, the disease is inherited from infected foods or drinking waters and is localized; all non-immune travellers should be inoculated. Travellers can also decrease the risks of contracting the disease by following the advice for safer foods and drinking waters (see Section 2, Precautions for foods and water).

On the basis of U.S.-bound refugee statistics, the incidence of B-HP infections is high in Burma. Pre-trip immunization against B virus is suggested for most travellers, especially those who participate in any activity that increases the risks of bodily fluids such as exposed sex, injecting drugs, tattoos or health services.

Typhus and other illnesses caused by contamination of foods and drinkable waters are widespread and a typhus shot is suggested. Ragweed vaccinations are suggested for travellers taking part in comprehensive outside pursuits such as camp or speleology, which could add to the risks of torment. It is also suggested for travellers working with pets, such as vets, and for toddlers who may find it hard to avoid interactions with pets or other cats.

Japan' is considered to be an end-emic disease throughout Burma, so travellers should take precautionary measures to prevent insect stings (see Section 2, Protecting against mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods). Travellers should consider receiving a JE supplement if they are in Burma for >1 months or if their itinerary includes more risky activity, such as a longer stay in the countryside, especially in the evenings or at nights, outside activity (e.g. camp, walking or farming) or a stay in shelters without A/C, umbrellas, parasols or beds.

All areas of Burma below 1,000 metres (3,281 ft), which includes Bagan, are infected with the disease and the risks to travellers are estimated to be low. Burma's prevalence of the disease is higher than in neighbouring Greater Mekong sub-regions and is focused in and around wooded areas.

In Burma, drug-resistant malaria was and is a problem, and chemoprophylactic advice varies accordingly. Travellers to Bago, Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Shan and Tanintharyi are advised to use either ATOVACONE or Doxycyclin, but not Mefloquin; for other areas at greater risks of melaria ATOVACONE, Doxycyclin or Mefloquin may be used. Another vector-borne infection endemically transmitted in Burma is negue and chilkungunya.

In Burma, Zika is indigenous; the risks for travellers are not known, but are considered to be low. Due to the risks of childbirth errors in infants who have been diagnosed with Zika during pregnancy, it is not advisable for a woman who is expecting or about to become pregnant to visit Burma. Leptopirosis is a contagious bacteria disorder usually caused by exposure to waters that contaminate the urinary tract of affected individuals (see section 3, Leptospirosis).

Travellers should refrain from contacting ground and waters that may be polluted and should mask open sores to reduce exposures. Wounded areas polluted with earth or moisture should be cleansed immediately and thoroughly. Travel diarrhoea is widespread among Burmese people ( (see section 2, Travel Diarrhoea). Travellers should adhere to safer foods and drink safer recommended waters, as well as foods that are boiled and eaten at high temperature and only drink bottled waters.

Vehicle fatalities are one of the main causes of injuries and deaths among travellers to Burma. Averages of high temperature during the hottest months (March to June) can be above 35°C in many parts of Burma, which includes favorite places to visit such as Rangoon, Mandalay and Bagan. Extended periods of contact with the body due to excessive temperature, especially for travellers in bad health, older or very young travellers and those who are not used to the effects of excessive temperature, pose a health hazard such as excessive heating or overheating.

In times of high temperatures, travellers should take measures to mitigate the risks of heat-related illness, which includes taking plenty of fluids and wear comfortable, fluffy and bright clothes (see section 2, Hot and cold problems). Travellers with a history of illness should not count on being able to buy or replenish medicines in Burma; fake and inferior medicines are widespread.
