Domestic, regional malaria advice for South Africa

The NICD has issued an alert for travellers to be aware of the risk of malaria both in endemic provinces (NE Limpopo, eastern Mpumalanga and northern KwaZulu-Natal) and in the wider region, particularly in the wake of the devastation wreaked by Cyclone Idai. The agency warns that as a result of conditions produced by the cyclone, ‘there may be an increase of malaria cases within the next two months locally and within the southeast African region’. (In other news relating to Cyclone Idai, cholera cases in Mozambique’s Beira and Dondo towns and Buzi and Nhamatanda districts (Sofala) rose to ‘nearly 3,600 with six deaths up to April 8’) Read more.
