While there has been a decline compared to the same period last year, with 6,927 reported cases between January and February, health officials emphasize the importance of continued caution.

Fortunate Manjoro, a social behavior communications officer at the Ministry of Health, stressed the need for individuals suspected of contracting malaria to seek medical attention promptly.

Additionally, Manjoro highlighted government efforts, in collaboration with other organizations, to implement programs aimed at preventing mosquito bites, which transmit malaria.
