People living in or travelling to Auckland should consider getting vaccinated against hepatitis A
Holidaymakers suffering health problems are being urged to take out
pre-existing medical travel insurance before heading to New Zealand as a recent outbreak of hepatitis A in Auckland is still ongoing.
Nine schools in the city on New Zealand's North Island have been affected, with a total of 30 probable and confirmed cases so far, the Auckland Regional Public Health Service said.
There has been no new infections since Wednesday, but the danger is not yet over, according to the health service.
People diagnosed with hepatitis A have been urged not to go to school, work or any social gathering while suffering the virus, which can last for a matter of weeks.
The warning could see people looking to
cover medical conditions without breaking the bank with World First Travel Insurance.
Those who are not infected might consider getting a vaccine against the liver disease, which can also lead to vomiting, diarrhoea and mild fever.
