Health risks in travelers to China: the GeoSentinel experience and implications for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2008 Jul; 79(1):4-8.AJ
Selected data collected for travelers to China from 1998 through November 2007 by the GeoSentinel Surveillance Network were used to provide an evidence base for prioritizing recommendations for Olympic and other future travelers to China. Respiratory illness and injuries were common among patients seen during their travel; acute diarrhea and dog bites were common among those seen after travel. Tropical and parasitic diseases were rare. Pre-travel consultation for China travelers should be individualized according to these findings.
