What is Japenese Encephalitis?
Japanese encephalitis (JE) is a rare disease in travellers, but can have serious consequences. The disease is endemic in 25 countries in Asia and the Western Pacific, not just in Japan. Most of these countries have it as part of the immunisation programme.
JE is caused by bites primarily from mosquitoes which carry the JE virus.
Even though it is rare, 1/3 of people infected show no symptoms, 1/3 of people may be left permanently disabled both physically and mentally and 1/3 of people suffer from inflammation of the brain, which can cause comas, paralysis and death.
Remedi appointments are as easy as 1, 2, 3
