Malaria cases on the rise

Worried about the flu? How shortsighted of you. Malaria is what should be on your radar. According to the CDC, malaria cases have reached a 40-year-high. In 2011, 1,925 cases were reported in the United States. Ninety-nine of those cases were reported right here in Georgia.
