Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi and other Health ministers from SADC nations are in Giyani in Limpopo to commemorate SADC Malaria Day.

The Mopani region and the Vhembe district in Limpopo, as well as parts of Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal have experienced a spike in malaria cases.

Eight Southern African countries known as “Eliminate Eight” are planning to eradicate the mosquito-borne disease completely by 2030.

In Giyani, Motsoaledi and the group of ministers are physically visiting households as part of monitoring spraying missions against the mosquito carrying virus.

A dramatic increase in Malaria infections was detected in seven of the SADC nations.
