What to do if you become ill

Get medical advice as soon as possible if you become ill while travelling abroad.

It's extremely unlikely you have Ebola, but it could be another serious condition such as cholera or malaria, so it's a good idea to get help in case you need tests or treatment.

Always remember to mention your recent travel history, as this will help identify what the problem could be.

Sometimes your doctor may want to take a sample of your blood, urine or stools so it can be checked for any infections.
