Almost managed to get through 5 years of living in the Solomons without catching Malaria.
But I've been experiencing weird flu-like symptoms, so I went down to the Clinic, had the test, and I've got P. Falciparum 2/200.
My wife and I have been having this running joke - The Solomons won't let you leave without a 'scar'. I almost lost my right index finger to a tropical sore last week, but managed to stop the infection with some anitbiotics. So it hit back with PF.
Anyway I'll take the Coartem and it will be gone in 3 days. Why so many people die from Malaria is completely beyond me, there's just no excuse.

PS. If you're travelling anywhere tropical these holidays where Malaria is a threat DO NOT take anti-malarials. Just try to not get bitten by the mossies (why mosquitoes suck today) and buy some Coartem or Artensunate from a local chemist when you leave, just in case.
Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
