Q) What measures are in place to prevent avian influenza in Bahrain?
 
A) To date, there have been no reports of avian influenza in birds or people in Bahrain and the Bahrain Government has many measures in place to prevent the emergence of avian influenza in Bahrain. Because the avian influenza virus has not been shown to definitely spread from person to person, it is very unlikely that anyone entering Bahrain with the disease will pass it on. But people who have arrived from overseas or travelled to countries where there are reports of avian influenza in birds or people should monitor their health carefully for seven (7) days (for other severe respiratory diseases this period of monitoring may be longer). They should immediately contact a doctor if they feel unwell with fever or flu-like symptoms and they should inform the doctor about their travels.
