Stay healthy over New Year
Travellers should be aware of the risk of avian flu when travelling to China for Chinese New Year.  Although the risk to UK residents travelling to the affected areas remains very low, anyone planning to visit China, Hong Kong SAR or Taiwan should minimise their exposure to birds.   PHE and the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) also strongly recommend you see your GP, pharmacist or travel health clinic to check you are in date with any recommended vaccinations, receive appropriate malaria advice and discuss any other potential risks.
