PF malaria hits bordering villages of Tripura amid fear of Covid infection

Agartala, Jul 6 (UNI) When the administration concentrated their whole efforts to fight against coronavirus, sudden spurt of malaria in Dhalai district of North Tripura has added concern for the health department and pulled life out of gear in hilly locations.
The plasmodium falciparum (PF) malaria infection during summer is common in Dhalai and Gomati districts of Tripura but last year there were not many reports of malaria infection due to Covid. However, with the beginning of rain last month, malaria cases were reported, which has prompted the government to go for malaria testing besides detection of Covid.
However, so far there is no malaria death reported in the state this year. Health officials said as many as 247 malaria cases have been tested in three weeks mostly in bordering remote villages of Dhalai district. The patients have been reporting to the local hospitals complaining of fever and physical weakness, who were initially suspected Covid positive but later they were found affected with PF malaria, the officials said.
