October 22 2010 (Friday) - Malaria

Whilst browsing the web (on my day off!!!) I found something worrying. Malaria was eradicated from Spain fifty years ago. Now it’s back. One can’t help but wonder if this is an isolated occurrence, or whether this is a shift in the global distribution of mosquitoes that the global warming pundits have been threatening.
After all, the marshes just down the road from me were malarious ot that long ago…

The fact that I now have to update my pre-prepared lectures on malaria is now the least of my malaria-related worries….
