Population At Risk
International travelers could be at risk of malaria infection in a hundred countries around the world, mostly in Africa, Asia and the Americas. People infected with malaria often experience fever, chills and flu-like illness at first. Left untreated, the disease can lead to severe complications and, in some cases, death. Malaria symptoms appear after a period of seven days or longer. Fever occurring in a traveler within three months of possible exposure is a medical emergency that should be investigated immediately.
