    That is great news but not just a China good news story but a developing nations good news story.



    'By the end of 2020, eight E-2020 countries had successfully reported zero indigenous cases of malaria, despite the threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic: Algeria, Belize, Cabo Verde, China, El Salvador, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Malaysia and Paraguay'

    The E-2025 initiative includes 8 new countries (Dominican Republic, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Sao Tome and Principe, Thailand and Vanuatu) and 17 E-2020 member countries (Belize, Bhutan, Botswana, Cabo Verde, Comoros, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Eswatini, Islamic Republic of Iran, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Suriname and Timor Leste

    You have my whole-hearted agreement.

    This is a China thread which is why I was focused on China (being regularly accused of "whataboutism", I'm trying to say on topic recently), but I agree that less malaria is a world-wide good news story.
