Malaria in Greece
« on: October 23, 2012, 08:30:50 AM »
Just stumbled across this article going back to 2011 which is reporting that after an absence of more than 30 years malaria is being seen in Greece again.  The cases (over 50) all are in the mainland but it is a cautionary tale in terms of protecting yourself against the pesky mozzie wherever you are.

Better safe than sorry eh!  The piece comes from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and is here for you to read in full http://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/activities/sciadvice/Lists/ECDC%20Reviews/ECDC_DispForm.aspx?List=512ff74f-77d4-4ad8-b6d6-bf0f23083f30&ID=1197.

Mind you I must say that I didn't see any signs of mozzies in Plakias in September but the didn't stop me spraying before going out and running to mozzie machine at night because the little b-----s love me.
