Malaria situation in Mauritius


Sante 5(6): 371-375
Malaria situation in Mauritius
Malaria was considered to be eradicated in Mauritius in 1973, although the vector, Anopheles arabiensis, remained. In 1975 malaria reappeared and the situation deteriorated following cyclones in 1979 and 1980. The maximum number of cases (668) occurred in 1982 with 95% of autochthonous cases due to Plasmodium vivax.
