What is Travellers Diarrhoea?
Up to 70% of people who travel suffer from Travellers Diarrhoea, according to the Centre for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).
- Travellers’ Diarrhoea is characterised by fever, belly cramps and profuse watery diarrhoea that can last for several days and lead to severe dehydration.
- Travellers’ Diarrhoea develops as a result of ingesting contaminated food and/or water and is common amongst travellers when visiting countries where they have no naturally developed immunity.
- Infection with Enterotoxigenic E. coli is the most common cause of Travellers’ Diarrhoea.
Travellers’ Diarrhoea can really ruin your holiday or the effectiveness of a business trip. The devastating loss of your valuable time, money and memories can be disastrous.
