By Alok Prasad, Associated PressNew Delhi: While some say that a new technology that promises to eradicate all forms of malaria and make the world a more clean and healthy place is on the horizon, the question remains: How safe is this technology?
According to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), in a world where more than two-thirds of the population lives in rural areas, a growing number of people will die from malaria each year.
The researchers say that, in addition to the risk of transmission to others, it is also highly unlikely that the malaria vaccine that is being developed by the vaccine company Sanofi Pasteur will be able to prevent many cases of malaria in India.
