Forslagene til vaccination og malariaforebyggelse er opdateret.
Statens Serum Institut anbefaler ikke længere rutinemæssig anvendelse af tabletter mod malaria til rejsende til de fleste lande/områder i Sydøstasien og i Mellem- og Sydamerika. Og vaccination mod tuberkulose anbefales primært til børn op til 11-12-års-alderen.
On 15 April 2020, WHO received information regarding a confirmed case of yellow fever in Magandi village, Tchibanga city in Nyanga Province of southern Gabon, 590 km from the capital, Libreville. The case is an 83-year-old male with no known vaccination history for yellow fever. He had onset of symptoms on 30 January 2020 and presented to a health facility on 2 February 2020 with abdominal pain and jaundice. Between 2 February and 9 April, he consulted the Urban Health Centre in Tchibanga, the Christian Alliance Hospital in Bongolo and the University hospital in the capital Libreville where the case received anti-malarial treatment and remained hospitalized until his death on 9 April 2020. On 14 April 2020, the laboratory results received from the WHO Regional Reference Laboratory at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, confirmed yellow fever infection, by seroneutralisation test. The additional differential diagnostic tests performed were negative for dengue, West Nile fever, chikungunya, Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic fever, Zika and Rift Valley fever.
Undiagnosed, COVID-19 -- NigeriaThanks for the RFI. What was initially regarded as mysterious wholesale deaths in Kano has been confirmed to be related to COVID-19. Even when there were controversial reports from government quarters, and the deaths conflated with malaria and meningitis, many health professionals, in the trenches, that I spoke with were unequivocal in their conclusions that this is caused by COVID-19. Many of the victims were reported to be above 60 and generally have respiratory distress as a core symptom,
Antallet af malaria sygdomstilfælde og dødsfald er halveret siden 2000. Men nu frygter WHO og Den Globale Fund til Bekæmpelse af HIV, Tuberkulose og Malaria store tilbageslag i kampen mod malaria set i lyset af den globale COVID-19 pandemi. De værste beregninger forudser en potentiel fordobling i antallet af malariatilfælde allerede i 2020.
Michael Theisen fra Afdeling for Medfødte Sygdomme på SSI er blevet udnævnt til professor ved Københavns Universitet (KU).
Statens Serum Institut (SSI) har sammen med et internationalt forskerkonsortium fået en stor fondsbevilling fra EDCTP. Pengene skal gå til at teste tre lovende malariavacciner i fire lande i Afrika.
Multiresistente malariaparasitter har ifølge nyt studie spredt sig til flere områder i Sydøstasien. Multiresistent betyder dog ikke, at parasitterne er resistente overfor alle typer malariamedicin.
Udbredelsen af nyere diagnostiske hurtigmetoder, der rettidigt påviser, om en patient med feber har malaria, fører til lavere forbrug af malariamedicin. Til gengæld er forbruget af antibiotika steget, viser nye studier af behandling af patienter med akut feber i seks lande i Afrika og Asien med høj forekomst af malaria.
I løbet af sommeren 2017 er der i flere sydeuropæiske lande rapporteret om sporadiske tilfælde af lokalt erhvervet malaria, som antages at være introduceret til lokalområderne af tilrejsende.
Statens Serum Institut (SSI) har tidligere beskrevet et udbrud af malaria (falciparum) i Kap Verde.
Verdenssundhedsorganisationen WHO advarer om, at et udbrud af malaria har udviklet sig i Kap Verde. Der er tale om den alvorlige type af malaria (falciparum).
Som lovet i EPI-NYT 27a -2017 er der nu publiceret et oversigtskort over malariaprofylakse til Syd- og Mellemamerika.
I 2016 blev i alt 101 tilfælde af importeret malaria anmeldt fra danske laboratorier til Statens Serum Institut.
I årets sidste EPI-NYT bringes en opgørelse over antallet af undersøgte patienter og påviste tilfælde af udvalgte parasitinfektioner ved hjælp af antistoffer i blodet: malaria, schistosomiasis, leishmaniasis, filariasis og trypanosomiasis.
SSI har udviklet et nyt subsite med anbefalinger om vaccination og evt. forebyggelse af malaria til rejsende.
Der blev påvist et stort antal tilfælde af vivax-malaria hos flygtninge fra Eritrea
I 2014 blev der anmeldt 102 tilfælde af malaria fra danske laboratorier til Statens Serum Institut.
I 2013 blev i alt 62 tilfælde af importeret malaria anmeldt fra danske laboratorier til Statens Serum Institut.
Malaria -- Worldwide/UnknownAbstract--------A possible malaria control approach involves the dissemination in mosquitoes of inherited symbiotic microbes to block plasmodium transmission. However, in the _Anopheles gambiae_ complex, the primary African vectors of malaria, there are limited reports of inherited symbionts that impair transmission.We show that a vertically transmitted microsporidian symbiont (_Microsporidia_ MB) in the _An. gambiae_ complex can impair plasmodium transmission. _Microsporidia_ MB is
Malaria -- YemenDoctors Without Borders (MSF) yesterday [27 Apr 2020] warned of an "increasing risk of malaria outbreak in Yemen," as rain floods the country. "With the start of the rain season, a risk of a malaria outbreak in Yemen increases," MSF said on Twitter, on the occasion of the World Malaria Day [25 Apr 2020]."While Yemen is currently preparing for a possible spread of COVID-19 the rest of the health system needs to be kept running, or else we must expect a rise in deaths from other diseases
Malaria -- NamibiaThe ministry of health in Kavango West and Kavango East regions has reported about 827 malaria cases, while inhabitants are being encouraged to use mosquito repellents to curb the spread."We are having cases, but we are not in an outbreak; we are keeping it under control, but the cases that we have now are more than what we had last year . Remember we experienced low rainfall last year," said the regional chief medical officer for the 2 Kavango regions, Dr. Abiola Adesina.Adesina
Malaria -- RwandaRice farming is a priority crop in Rwanda but working in the flooded fields means 10 hours a day exposed to mosquitoes.Rwanda's tens of thousands of acres of bright green, grassy rice fields present a paradox for the landlocked East African country. The crop is a dietary staple for virtually every family here, and it brings in a good chunk of the country's GDP. So, the government is embarking on an aggressive campaign to produce even more. But the waterlogged fields where the grain grows
Malaria -- IndiaWith 4 new cases reported last week, the number of patients suffering from malaria has reached 19 this year .Last year , not even a single case of malaria was reported [up to the same] time.

The population in the landlocked country in Southeast Africa is estimated at 11.53 million in 2019.Malaria has been a scourge in Burundi in recent years. In fact, World Vision International reports
Malaria -- United StatesIt's hard to imagine a time when Hawaii's native forest birds were so abundant that Hawaiian honeycreeper songs were ear-splitting, as one early naturalist described it.Only 17 forest bird species are left in the islands, down from more than 50 that evolved here over thousands of years, according to the Audubon Society. And nearly all of those that persist appear poised for extinction in this century as threats to their survival intensify with the onset of climate change.Over time,

Two cases of presumably airport-acquired falciparum malaria were diagnosed in Frankfurt in October 2019. They were associated with occupation at the airport, and Plasmodium falciparum parasites from their blood showed genetically identical microsatellite and allele patterns. Both had severe malaria. It took more than a week before the diagnosis was made. If symptoms are indicative and there is a plausible exposure, malaria should be considered even if patients have not travelled to an endemic area.
Malaria -- VenezuelaBetween 2005 and 2014, there was an overall decreasing trend in the number of cases of malaria in the Region of the Americas; however, since 2015, there has been an increase in the number of malaria cases reported in the Region.This overall increase is due to the increase in cases over the last 3 years in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela along with increased transmission in endemic areas of countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Guyana, Nicaragua, and Panama, as well as outbreaks in
The Food and Drug Administration approved tafenoquine for prophylaxis of malaria and antirelapse therapy.
On 10 October 2019, the National IHR Focal Point for Sudan notified WHO of 47 suspected cases of Rift Valley Fever (RVF), including two deaths in Arb’aat Area, Towashan Village, in El Qaneb locality, Red Sea State. The suspected cases presented with high-grade fever, headaches, joint pain, vomiting. There were no hemorrhagic signs or symptoms observed. The first case presented to the health facility on 19 September 2019. On 28 September 2019, a total of 14 samples were sent to the National Public Health Laboratory in Khartoum, and 5 tested positive for RVF by Immunoglobulin M (IgM) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). These samples were also tested for malaria and were found negative.
Malaria is endemic in many countries, and chemoprophylaxis is the best method of prevention.
The last stocks of the only FDA-approved injectable drug for severe malaria expired in April, compassionate access to the only alternative is at least 8 hours away, and hospitals need emergency plans.
Malaria -- BurundiA serious outbreak of malaria in Burundi has reached epidemic proportions, killing almost as many people as the Ebola crisis in the nearby Democratic Republic of the Congo.The outbreak in the tiny Great Lakes country has infected almost half the total population, killing about 1800 people since the beginning of the year .According to figures gathered by the World Health Organisation, almost 6 million cases have been recorded since the 1st week of January to the end of July
Malaria -- IndiaOver 80 cases of malaria have been reported in Delhi this year  so far, and about 39 of them have been recorded in July . Of the 83 cases of malaria, 35 were recorded in June, 8 in May, and one in April .Doctors have advised people to take precautions and urged them to wear [long] sleeves and use mosquito nets. Water coolers should be dried up when not in use, as mosquitoes that carry the [malaria parasite and transmit malaria between people] usually breed there, a doctor
Malaria -- VenezuelaMore than 10 cases of malaria have been reported in the Boyaca III sector of Barcelona (Anzoategui, Venezuela) in the past 2 weeks. Of these cases, 2 are young children aged 1 and 2 years old, infected after the bite of the _Aedes aegypti_ mosquito.Maria Febres, a nurse and resident of the community, states that the malaria outbreak is due to the lack of weeding and cleaning in the channel that crosses the Boyaca III sector, where more than 500 families reside."We have 12 cases of

Malaria -- United KingdomNoisy and cheeky, they used to be a regular sight in people's gardens as one of Britain's most common birds. But the number of house sparrows has more than halved since the [1970s], and a new study suggests 'avian malaria' may be to blame.Avian malaria, spread by mosquito, can make sparrows lethargic and unable to eat, killing many through starvation.Researchers who tracked sparrows in 11 suburbs of London have now discovered almost 3/4 carry the infectious disease.As warming
Malaria -- MalaysiaHealth officials in Malaysia are investigating a malaria cluster in Kuala Lipis, Pahang state.

Malaria -- VenezuelaCriminals are not immune to the effects of Venezuela's current economic, political, and social crisis.Many criminals, primarily pranes and leaders of megabandas, have been forced to abandon their former strongholds and change the pattern of their criminal activities, according to investigations conducted by InSight Crime.Criminals are trading robbery, petty theft, and kidnappings for drug trafficking and illegal mining. Additionally, they are migrating to states where these illicit
Malaria -- Trinidad & TobagoThere have been 17 malaria cases thus far in Trinidad and Tobago in 2019, and 13 are Venezuelans. One case is a Trinbagonian, one is from Uganda, one is from Ghana, and one is from Guyana.This was disclosed by health minister Terrence Deyalsingh as he responded to a question from Oropouche West MP Vidia Gayadeen-Gopeesingh on whether there was truth to social media reports that many Venezuelan nationals seeking medical attention at Port of Spain and San Fernando general hospitals have
Malaria -- Worldwide/UnknownMalaria control efforts require implementation of new technologies that manage insecticide resistance. _Metarhizium pingshaense_ provides an effective, mosquito-specific delivery system for potent insect-selective toxins. A semifield trial in a MosquitoSphere (a contained, near-natural environment) in Soumousso, a region of Burkina Faso where malaria is endemic, confirmed that the expression of an insect-specific toxin (Hybrid) increased fungal lethality and the likelihood that
