In the 1st fortnight of this month [August 2018], the city recorded
the 1st death due to malaria this year [2018] after a 52-year-old
housekeeper from Worli Koliwada died of respiratory failure on 6 Aug

[ProMED last reported malaria in Mumbai in 2011 and underlined that
malaria is endemic in the slum areas of the city. It would be
interesting to see how many cases are presumed infected outside Mumbai
and how many local cases without a travel history are found. - Mod.EP
