An interactive Travel Risk Map, created by International SOS, has been launched which shows which country travellers should avoid in all circumstances
A new interactive map has revealed the most dangerous countries in the world to travel to.
It will come as no surprise that war-torn countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Syria and Sudan are all listed as having the highest travel security risk.
But the Travel Risk Map also warns against Haiti along with North Korea, Venezula, Liberia and Niger, reports the Manchester Evening News .
They all score ‘very high’ when it comes to health risk – including infectious diseases.
The map, created by security and risk experts International SOS , ranks the safety of countries across the globe in terms of medical, security and road risks.
For the first two categories, countries are given a rating out of five, while road safety is rated out of four based on the mortality rate per 100,000 people.
