Malaria outbreak

Malaria outbreak

Postby KarenS » Thu Dec 28, 2006 9:48 am

In late November 2006, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) received a report of a case of malaria infection in a U.S. resident who traveled to Kingston, Jamaica, from October 29 through November 6. To date, active surveillance by health authorities in Jamaica identified 107 confirmed cases. Jamaica is a country where malaria transmission does not normally occur and where CDC has not previously recommended antimalarial prophylactic drugs for U.S. travelers. The outbreak is believed to have started in late October 2006. All confirmed infections were caused by Plasmodium falciparum.
