The map shows the distribution of Plasmodium falciparun (Pf) malaria in China at the province level. Pf is one form of plasmodium infection which often presents with a feverish disease, the severe form of which can be fatal. The average number of reported Pf cases for the year 2004/2005 is presented in the map. Evidently the total number of known cases of malaria is very low across the country. The disease is largely limited to Yunnan and Hainan Provinces, which contain the most seriously affected areas. In other parts of the country, including Hong Kong, isolated cases of malaria are reported, which are normally imported. Data for the map were obtained from CDC China.

地圖顯示2004-05年惡性瘧在中國各省的年均病例數。惡性瘧是其中一種瘧原蟲引起的熱病,嚴重可以致命。全國瘧疾報告數很低,而雲南和海南省為惡性瘧本地流行的两個省份。香港和其它省份一樣,偶然發生瘧疾個案,但一般因外游感染。地圖數據源自中國疾病預防及控制中心。
