Malaria Progress Stalls, New Report Says
November 20, 2018
(ABC News) – Progress against eradicating malaria seems to have stopped, according to a new report from the World Health Organization. The number of malaria cases fell from 239 million in 2010 to 217 million in 2016. But then the number of cases jumped to 239 million. The disease is still clearly a danger – especially to those in African countries and in India, which account for 80 percent of the world’s malaria burden.
