Latest reports from WHO suggests that the number of malaria cases in India has dropped significantly

In India, the number of malaria cases has significantly dropped when compared to other countries in the Southeast-Asia region. In the year 2000, almost 20 million cases were recorded and this number was brought down to 5.6 million last year. Recently a report was published in regards to malaria and it was mentioned that the number of global cases have remained unchanged for almost 4 years. 409,000 lives were lost in 2019 compared to the 2018 numbers. It must be noted that several countries from the Southeast Asia have made strong progress by reducing the deaths and cases of 74 per cent and 73 per cent respectively. India has contributed majorly to the drop in number of cases from a whopping 20 million to about 6 million.

WHO also made a statement that India has made impressive gains in the fight against the deadly malaria. The WHO is trying its best to call on countries and other global health partners to come together for the fight against malaria. To achieve the internationally agreed targets, the countries are expected to use new tools, targeted interventions and better funding. The report also stated that WHO has provided swift guidance to countries despite the fact that there is an ongoing pandemic.
