An increasing number of travellers around Britain are not taking ant-malarias before travelling to malaria endemic regions. The announcement comes from the UK Health Protection Agency (HPA) that says that the number of UK travellers contracting malaria has increased by 30% over a 2 year period.

Some travellers think that if they have had malaria once that they cannot have it again however this is not the case according to a HPA spokesperson. With so much research being carried out on malaria prevention and treatment it is shocking that people are not taking the necessary precautions. Malaria is potentially life threatening but easy to prevent and antimalarial drugs can be prescribed by The Online Clinic for next day delivery.
