Cluster of hepatitis A cases among travellers returning from Egypt, Germany, September through November 2008
From September to November 2008, 34 cases of hepatitis A imported from Egypt were reported to the German public health authorities. Investigations point to a continuing common source of infection, most likely linked to Nile river cruises. The patients affected had not been vaccinated, which emphasises the need for more effective travel advice before trips to hepatitis A endemic countries.
