Dr. Alexander Lupenko Warns of Increased Infectious Disease Risk

February 01 08:06 2017

VALLEY STREAM, NY – 1 Feb, 2017 – Dr. Alexander Lupenko, an infectious disease doctor in New York state, has warned travelers are becoming increasingly unaware of the biological dangers they face when traveling abroad. The ease of modern travel has meant that many jet-setters are no longer taking the proper precautions and immunizations prior to travel. This may lead to increases in travelers contracting and transmitting infectious diseases across borders.

Dr. Lupenko recently spoke regarding the risks, “As traveling becomes more common place in our society, and the costs associated with it reduce, we are seeing increased numbers of individuals traveling to remote areas associated with biological risks. Many people do not understand the dangers that come with traveling to developing nations. It is important we increase the public’s awareness of infectious diseases abroad so that travelers can take the necessary precautions to avoid becoming ill.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) list disease related resources for individuals seeking information prior to traveling. Travelers should seek to stay informed on the risks associated with the areas they are traveling to. While the CDC’s website is a great resource, it is also imperative to visit an infectious disease doctor in order to review your personal health risks and receive appropriate immunizations and medicines.

Dr. Lupenko is considered one of the areas most well known infectious disease specialists; he has over 30 years of experience in the industry. He received his medical degree from Jagiellonian University Medical College in Poland in 1983. He then immigrated to the United States to complete his residency at Catholic Medical Center of Brooklyn & Queens. He has spent the majority of his career practicing in Valley Stream, NY.

Doctor Alex Lupenko MD of Valley Stream New York Suggests Weariness in South East Asia

Infectious disease specialist Dr. Alexander Lupenko has warned travelers to be weary when traveling to South East Asia during the holiday season. The region is becoming increasingly popular with American tourists looking to venture outside their normal comfort zone, but traveling to the region has its own associated health risks that must be attended to.

Speaking on the matter, Dr. Lupenko stated, “Many American travelers are beggining to venture to South East Asia without knowing the risks that are associated with some popular of the popular destinations. Countries such as Thailand are becoming very popular with young tourists going abroad, but many do not know that Hepatitis A and Typhoid immunizations are vital in ensuring they remain healthy while abroad. Speaking with an infectious disease specialist prior to departure can help travelers avoid unnecessary illness.”

Thailand and other regional countries in Asia also have high levels of Hepatitis B, Cholera, and Malaria transmission. The majority of these diseases are easily avoidable with the right medical advice. Certain tourists with special health requirements may need additional immunizations, or, in rare cases, are better off avoiding the region all together.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is an excellent initial resource for travelers scoping out what immunizations and medicines are necessary when visiting the region. Their website has diseases by destination information freely available to the public. This being said, it is imperative that travelers also speak to their healthcare specialist to make sure that travel is safe, as diseases within the area can often appear and develop at short notice.

“Infectious diseases are easily avoidable with modern medicine, the key is to always stay informed and consult an expert in the region that you are traveling to,” Dr. Lupenko noted.
