Yellow Fever: So Yellow Fever Will Prevent You from Touring the World

Updated on September 21, 2009

Watch Out The Yellow Fever before your Travelling Date

I was on with my normal routine when a friend of mine came knocking at my door, “Hi bro How are you doing”, and replied that “am doing fine”. Before we could get into discussion I asked him about his trip and why the trip has taken a few days than expected. To my surprise he told me that yellow fever has to be blamed for all this

I asked him what’s wrong with the yellow fever, and what is the yellow fever in the first place, he could not explain what a yellow fever is but what he said is that is a disease that could prevent you from travelling to places outside your country. I was very surprised to note that there are some diseases that can prevent people from moving around the world

He told me that the yellow fever is serious at the immigration department; I asked him how they go about testing for yellow fever at the immigration department. But his response was that you have to go for test at a government hospital so that you can be examined

My friend told me that he couldn’t travel because he had delay to take the yellow fever test, and that the whole reason why he was denied visa to travel. Now from the chart with this friend of mine it became very clear to me that always one needs to go for some of these tests like yellow fever test

And to many that still do not know, yes yellow fever if you are diagnosed with will prevent you from travelling across the world, and before you leave your country you have to be tested and if cleared you will be able to travel

The disease is told is very serious and can spread within a short time leading to massive infection that will result to death, and to be safe you always need to go for yellow fever test. So this is one of the mandatory test before you leave your country of residence
