After earlier treatment failure reports from the continent in February, the attached article documents artemisinin-resistant falciparum malaria in African. How ironic that as humanity celebrated the World Malaria Day with a bold "End malaria for good" theme, the most deadly malaria parasite appears to have been also exhibiting its own scary milestones. The threats of authochthonous African Plasmodium falciparum resistance to artemisinin do not seem geographically confined either (see https://malariaworld.org/blog/artemisinin-resistance-africa).
What can be done to nip this daunting menace in the bud? Is treatment only after confirmed diagnosis enough, or are more strategies urgently needed?
