Areas with Malaria in South Africa

When it comes to dealing with infectious diseases, you might have thought that South Africa had enough. Unfortunately, COVID 19 and malaria have some things in common. In other words, you can't argue with either. Malaria Alert

COVID-19 Issued by

NICD Just as the fourth wave of COVID-19 is nearing its end in Muzansi, the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NICD) reports malaria outbreaks in some parts of the country. Announced that it was done.

This is the peak of the malaria season. So more cases will be reported throughout the fall-but how can you know exactly which illness your body is fighting?

Where is the South African Malaria HOT SPOTS?

Well, that's the problem. It is often very difficult to tell if it is malaria or COVID 19 because the symptoms are similar. People living in Limpopo, KZN and Mpumalanga have been "warned" about the spread of the disease. There is also a warning for returnees from Mozambique.

"Odician" Infection Caution ...

NICD also advises patients not to refuse suspicion of malaria infection because they are not near the "endemic area". The mosquitoes that carry it can travel long distances, usually hitchhiking in cars, vans, and buses, which can spread the virus to several relatively distant locations.
