(3/24/2013)

The West Australian warns that there has been a “dramatic increase” in cases of infectious disease among West Australians returning from holidays in Bali.
Health authorities say increased travel levels to Bali have also resulted in increased cases of dengue fever and salmonella gastroenteritis.

Australian health officers are working to educate Australian travelers about health risks and preventative steps that should be taken to remain healthy.

The West Australian reports that in 2012 some 2,650 cases of infectious disease were acquired by West Australians traveling overseas. Government officials also say that 41% of those who became ill did so in Indonesia, mostly in Bali.

The highest number of disease reports from Indonesia were for dengue fever (415 notifications) representing 80% of all dengue cases found in Western Australia.

Other diseases caught in Bali in 2012, according to Western Australian officials, were salmonella gastroenteritis (263 cases), campylobacter gastroenteritis (157 cases), Chlamydia (95 cases) and gonorrhea (37 cases).

Other diseases, but with lower reporting rates if infection include hepatitis A, HIV, legionnaires’ disease, malaria, typhus and typhoid fever.

157 West Australian also needed rabies prophylaxis in 2012 after visiting Bali in 2012.
