If you’re visiting somewhere new, or if you’ll be traveling outside the United States, your first step should be to thoroughly research the destination since there’s an opportunity to encounter various diseases while touring foreign locales. In addition to learning the best places to explore, a travel guide and government warnings can alert you to potential dangers like water contamination or specific diseases common to the site.
