Bahama’s Malarial Outbreak Need Control
In Bahamas an outbreak of malarial attack has made people to be feared and need the Ministry of Health to do work to prevent its spread . This non-endemic malarial attack has not been spread through any human or other transmissions instead it is due to a mosquito (female anopheles) in Bahamas.

In Exuma, a large number of people were infected by the malarial disease, which came to be known by the authorities later. The Haiti country is also at risk to develop the disease since thousands of people travel to The Bahamas daily. Magnified growth of anopheles mosquito takes place specially, during the rainfalling, hurricane season.

People in Bahamas are in need education about the route of transmission, incubation period, risks of the disease, etc.

A Centre for Disease Control has set categories for people who are most susceptible to malaria. This includes people having very low immunity against diseases. The most vulnerable population in the area of Africa (south of the Sahara) includes infants, children, pregnant women and travelers or migrants, who lacks immunity.

People, who live in countries with lower transmission like Latin America and Asia, are also vulnerable since they are grown without adequate immunity to malaria.
