Experience in the consolidation measures at the final stage of malaria eradication in Daxin County, Guangxi

Experience in the consolidation measures at the final stage of malaria eradication in Daxin County, Guangxi

Chinese Journal of Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases 6(1): 57-60

In 1957, the prevalence of malaria in Daxin County, Guangxi, China, was 22.1% in the hilly areas (where Anopheles minimus was the principal vector) and 4.6% in the plain (where A. sinensis was the dominant vector). An eradication programme, which included indoor residual spraying with DDT and chemotherapy, was begun in 1958. By 1979, the parasite rate was 0.03% and malaria morbidity was 0.2%. Malaria was virtually eradicated in the plain but foci remained in the hills, where the control programme was intensified. After 3 years, the annual incidence rate had declined to 0.1%. No cases of Plasmodium falciparum and P. malariae were recorded and the number of P. vivax infections declined. Between 1980 and 1985, only 2 of 11 256 febrile patients were positive for malaria in Encheng, a village under malaria surveillance; none of 903 infants and 6806 adults was infected.
