Presentation Malaria Impact Report on 25 April, World Malaria Day
On World Malaria Day Arnoud Aalbersberg, Chief Mosquito Officer of Travel Health Group presented the Malaria Impact Reportat the Floriade. Malaria is a preventable infectious disease and since 2000 the number of infections and deaths were in decline. The WHO Malaria Report 2021, with an update on 2020, shows a very different and worrisome picture: for the first time since 2000 the number of infections and deaths related to Malaria increased dramatically. This was caused merely by service disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
