Has anyone else seen the news that the stats show despite it being considered that Malaria had been almost eradicated from the Cape Verde islands that there has recently been a significant outbreak of people being struck down by malaria again?

Comments from the WHO (World Health Organisation) say there have been significant increases in cases in the capital city of Praia on São Tiago Island (also known as Santiago Island). :( :( :(

Has this affected anyone's choice about visiting/booking a holiday?

As an aside, there are still comments about Zika being present and reported as local transmission (meaning that mosquitoes in the area have been infected with Zika virus, spreading it to people.)
