The rainy season has started in Malawi – which is great for the growing season and agriculture! However, the heavy rains also bring an increase in the number of Malaria cases because there are more mosquitoes. Our out-patient department at Comfort Community Hospital usually sees an average of 50 to 60 malaria cases in a week. However, as you can see in the chart above – the number of cases has drastically increased now with 375 cases last week.
