Igara West grappling with increased Malaria cases.

Authorities in Bushenyi district have expressed concern about a sharp rise in malaria cases in Igara west constituency.

Speaking to journalists, the district health inspector, Gregory Tushabe noted that malaria cases are on the rise among children 6-10 years compared to past years where it was so rampant in children below 5years and pregnant mothers.

He attributed this change to people’s failure to adhere to preventive measures designed by ministry of health like sleeping under the treated mosquito nets, clearing of bushes and stagnant water around homes among others.

Wilber Arinaitwe, the malaria focal person in Bushenyi district however attributed the challenge to people waiting for the government to provide new treated mosquito nets saying the old ones are no longer able to kill the mosquitoes.

Arinaitwe said seven out of every 10 patients in the Kashabya health center III, Bitooma health center III and Kyamuhunga health center III test positive for malaria.
