Meanwhile malaria.......

Meanwhile malaria doesn't seem to want to go away despite all attempts to eradicate the anopheles from within our midst. Stubborn little fellas.

Last week we crossed our century mark (104 cases) and had 8 fresh cases, at least one of which is a locally transmitted case. Over the first half of 2009 we chalked up 96 cases of which 22 were local.

Meanwhile, the other nuisance infection seems firmly entrenched as an endemic disease.... the chikungunya has also refused to go away and has maintained a steadfast presence in our midst. Last week we had 4 cases, 2 of which were locally transmitted.
