Scientists Call for Rapid Action to Avert New Malaria Threat

Scientists are calling for immediate action to prevent a species of mosquito new to Africa - which, unusually, thrives in urban areas - from spreading. It has already been reported in Ethiopia and Sudan is likely being spread along major transportation routes. Kenya and Tanzania may be at a particularly high risk due to their close proximity to the Horn of Africa.
