In contrast, the severe acute respiratory syndrome SARS epidemic, now faded from travel medicine discussion, has been very relevant in the context of international travel and health. During the episode, 8, cases with deaths were recorded and were imported.
The experience clearly illustrates that some global connections, in this case what apparently happened in restaurants and on markets in Southeastern China, has the potential to become very relevant to all of us.
But SARS is now history, it has disappeared for the time being—thus is the current traveler at present no longer threatened by emerging infections? As described in the above noted Time article on how we perceive risk, attention both by the media and public seem far less interested in infections with a low case fatality rate even if over time they are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality.
On the other side of the Indian Ocean, the epidemic is still ongoing in several Indian States. Reports indicate that in the past months, many tourists imported chikungunya to European countries, Hong Kong, Canada, and to the United States. Dengue remains on a continuous rise. The number of endemic countries has increased from 9 in the s to 60 in and to over now 10 years later. The majority of tropical beaches are at risk nowadays. Data from the GeoSentinel program demonstrate that dengue is now more frequently diagnosed than malaria in travelers having returned from the South America and Asia.

In India alone, the volume of travelers passing through Indian airports quadrupled between and from 11 million to 44 million.
The first jet aircraft service to Bali began only in and similar access to Katmandu began in The collapse of the former Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War at the end of the s, for example, opened opportunities for traveling in large areas of the world that were until then difficult to visit. Increased and easier access has also been associated with changes in traveler demographics.
Easier access to travel now facilitates travel by the elderly, those with chronic illnesses, and other vulnerable groups. Additionally, refugees and others displaced by conflict and disaster continue to make up a rising component of vulnerable international travelers. Global migration has expanded, and it is now estimated that million individuals live or work in countries other than where they were born.
