Great success achieved through mass movement in the eradication of Oncomelania snails in the anti-schistosomiasis campaign in China


, : Great success achieved through mass movement in the eradication of Oncomelania snails in the anti-schistosomiasis campaign in China. Acta Zoologica Sinica 20(3): 211-219

Great progress has been made in China during the last few years in the control of Oncomelania (the snail host of Schistosoma japonicum) which has been eradicated from two-thirds of the areas originally infested. This has been achieved by the corporate efforts of the population in the elimination of the snail habitats, by land reclamation, construction of appropriate irrigation and drainage systems, and reservoirs, and clearing of aquatic plants from the water canals and channels.
