[Epidemiological Analysis of Malaria in Wenzhou City during 2007-2014].

[Article in Chinese]

Abstract

A total of 258 malaria cases with 2 deaths were reported during 2007-2014, including 148 vivax malaria cases, 106 falciparum malaria cases, and 4 ovale malaria cases. During 2007-2009, 86.0% (135/157) were vivax malaria cases with 3 indigenous cases. In 2010-2014, the proportion of falciparum malaria is increasing year by year, and all were imported cases. 98.8% were imported from Africa and other provinces in China. Most cases occurred among patients aged 20-49 years, and the male-to-female ratio was 3.16:1. Most patients were workers and commercial service personnel. The malaria epidemic situation is relatively stable in Wenzhou. Malaria control and elimination interventions should emphasize the monitoring and education of transient population to control the imported cases, and explore multi-sector coordination for malaria prevention and control.
