WHO declares China malaria-free
Within a few months, China has largely brought COVID-19 under control. Now the People's Republic has apparently also won the battle against the infectious disease malaria. The World Health Organization (WHO) on Wednesday officially classified the world's most populous country as malaria-free. "We congratulate the people of China on ridding the country of malaria," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced in a statement. He further stated that "with its hard-earned success, China has joined the growing number of countries that are showing the world that a future without malaria is feasible."
