Japanese encephalitis is a viral brain infection that's spread through mosquito bites when travelling to risk areas.

When a mosquito bites an infected big or bird and passes it to humans – if the human contracts Japanese encephalitis – hospitalisation is required. There is currently no cure. Symptoms are severe – fever, temperature, stiff neck, tremor, paralysis. Japanese encephalitis is an infection that affects the brain.

Prevention via vaccination is extremely important.

Additional precautions, even when vaccinated are important too – using insecticides, keep covered up.
