Malaria, Plasmodium Knowles in Sarawak, Malaysia

He told The Borneo Post that there is a possibility the disease could have been transmitted by some hunters from nearby villages, such as Kampung Seratau, Kampung Sedenu, and Kampung Kutan, who could have been infected by monkeys while hunting at Bukit Kuap in the Mile 13 area. At the moment, he said it was endemic only at the Mile 13 area and was still under control.

To control the spread of the disease, Dr Jerip said the Health Department was taking all the necessary precautions such as advising residents in the affected villages to stop hunting in the suspected area. "We also carry out fogging and advise people to use mosquito nets," he said. When contacted, State Health Department director Datu Dr Zulkifli Jantan confirmed that the disease was rampant only at the Mile 13 area.

He said the cumulative number of reported cases last year was 1098, including 97 reported in the 1st 10 weeks of this year [2015].
