MalariaWorldThis study suggests that vivax malaria outbreaks in Huanhuai valley is highly related to the enhancement in vector capacity of An. sinensis for P. vivax, which is attributed to the local residents' habits and the remarkable drop in the number of large livestock leading to disappearance of traditional biological barriers.
