Peru has experienced unusually heavy rains since the middle of March, and flooding has occurred in Lima and along the northern coast. This has had an impact on transport and has caused disruption. So far Cuzco and Macho Pichu are relatively unaffected. At this point in time we are unaware of any significant outbreaks of disease, but the situation may change and requires monitoring. As well as our website, the following websites will also provide up to date information:
There have been 4 seperate confirmed cases of measles in travellers returning to WA from Bali. This combined with cases of measles in Bali travellers in other states, has prompted the WA Health Department to issue a measles alert.
