 Travelers Advised to Take Adequate Precautions Against Malaria

An analysis of statistics has shown that nearly 50% of malaria cases reported in the UK have been in those who travelled to India and West Africa to pay a visit to relatives or friends.

Experts have added a word of caution that it is advisable to pack anti-malaria pills if people are travelling abroad for the vacation as there has been a 30% increase in number of cases in the last two years.

Professor Peter Chiodini, from the HPA's malaria reference laboratory, said, "Even people living in Britain visiting the country in which they were born or grew up, or have previously visited, are not immune from malaria and should take precautions."
