I wouldn't worry about Ebola in India, and neither does the Economist. There is a small Indian diaspora in West Africa (far smaller than the one in East Africa, mind you), but compared to India's sheer population the amount of passengers traveling between the two is pretty minuscule. Now add in that Ebola transmission requires direct contact with a ...

Based on your comment you should be scared to go back home because if i compare to current situation, India don't have a Ebola case yet but USA have. Jokes apart i think you are safe to go to Delhi, Just make sure you drink packaged drinking water and you should be fine. Stay and eat in any 5 star hotel if you don't like local food and its hygiene.

According to the latest news there no problems reported with Ebola in India. There are only a few cases outside of the African continent itself, e.g. in Spain and the United States, but not in India.

This has all the hallmarks of some jobsworth throwing his weight around. The existence of such a “regulation” is very unlikely if only because “through one of the four major airports” excludes the land crossing at Attari (Wagah).

If you have any concerns, then you can order it on Amazon and request delivery in India. BTW, this item is widely available in India, at least in the larger cities. I have ...

No, when you book a ticket from point A to B then you have the right to travel only from A to B. That is because you pay only for the journey from A to B and not O to T. If there are other passengers who book tickets from O to A or B to A, the same seat might be allotted to them for those legs of the journey. In case there are no bookings for those legs, ...

Mefloquine (tradename Lariam) is easily available at medical stores as well as Malarone is available at least in some places is India (e.g. Connaught Place in Mumbai). Or maybe you catch a foreign traveller with extra to sell. But I wouln't recommend Mefloquine (Lariam) as antimalarial medicine, because there is controversy over it. Since its introduction, ...
