Twenty Four Hours in LA

California’s City of Angels is one of the key entry points to the United States for New Zealanders and many travellers choose to break up their journey to Europe, New York or Latin America with a stopover in Los Angeles.

Pacific Island Mosquito-borne Disease Outbreak

Pacific Island Mosquito-borne Disease Outbreak

News reports have been coming in fast to the Worldcare office around some major outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases in the Pacific Island. As it is peak season for New Zealanders to head to our nearby tropical island neighbours, we thought it wise to let you know how to avoid mosquito bites, as well as signs to look out for if you do get bitten. Dengue fever, chikungunya and Zika fever have reached epidemic levels in the past year, enough for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and New Zealand health authorities to actively warn Kiwis to take care when island-hopping.
