 Focus on Malaria Hotspots to Cut Its Transmission
It is imperative to focus on malaria hotspots to reduce its transmission.

The authors state: "Malaria hotspots appear to maintain malaria transmission in low transmission seasons and are the driving force for transmission in the high transmission season. Targeting the hotspots would mean the most infected and most diseased households would be prioritized with the added benefits of reducing transmission to the whole community."
