The proportion of the VK247 subtype in Myanmar was 43.1% (n=25) among 58 positive cases by serodiagnosis and 25.6% (n=24) among 94 positive cases by genetic diagnosis. In both diagnostic methods, the infection status of malaria patients is highly diverse with respect to malaria species, and multiple clonal infections are prevalent in Myanmar.
