Romanian returning from Greece, diagnosed with malaria

The Health Ministry (MS) yesterday warned Romanians planning to go to Greece that malaria was reported in the southern region Peloponese, and a Romanian was diagnosed with this disease upon his return from Greece. According to Greek authorities, six cases of malaria have been reported since June.

Health Ministry officials said that the Romanian lived for two months in the affected area. The patient is now in good condition and his life is not under any threat.

In May this year, two youths that returned from work in Equatorial Guinea were admitted to the ‘Victor Babes’ National Institute of Bucharest, suspect of malaria. At mid-March, a woman aged 65 died from malaria at the Timisoara County Hospital, shortly after returning from Ghana.
