Malaria spread decreased as global warming slowed


Research conducted by the Barcelona Institute of Global Health (ISGlobal) revealed that the decline in global warming also reduced the spread of malaria.

Researchers examining the disease records in the high hills of Oromiya state of Ethiopia observed that the spread of malaria also slowed between 1998 and 2005, when global warming decreased.

In the region where two types of malaria were seen and all case records were taken, the fact that no large-scale measures were taken against the disease until 2004 showed that the decrease in contagiousness may be directly related to climatic conditions.

“The finding that reveals that a drop in temperature affects malaria contagion reveals the strong relationship between disease and climate,” said Xavier Rodo, Head of the ISGlobal Climate and Health Program. used the expression.

The study also recalled that there was a clear decrease in malaria cases across East Africa.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 400,000 people die each year from malaria.
