Travel warnings issued for Madagascar, Italy

by TPN/ Lusa, in News · 19-10-2017 13:52:00 · 1 Comments

The Portuguese health department said today that travellers to Madagascar should book an appointment with the tropical medicine department before going there; to use repellent when they arrive at their destination and to avoid contact with animals because of the plague.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) issued a warning at the beginning of the month about an outbreak of plague on the island that has already caused at least 45 deaths.
The Portuguese health department is also advising travellers heading to the Lazio region of central Italy to see a doctor because of an outbreak of Chikungunya, a disease that is spread by mosquitoes.
Cases have also been found in the Calabria region, in the ‘toe’ of southern Italy.

I didn't know Madagascar was in Italy! Could you please explain to me why the head line says "travel warnings issued for Madagascar, Italy" Do you mean that Italy is giving a warning for those who are travelling to Madagascar
