  • Prevalence and intensity of infection in this study were high, 56.6% of 572 study participants were infected with average parasite counts of 3022.25 ± 1001.51per µl of blood (Table 1) and the majority of heavy infection was due to Plasmodium falciparum (Fig. 2B). The heavily infected participants were among the younger age group particularly ≤ 20 years and transmission of infection decreases with increasing age. Although males have a significantly higher intensity of 3148.32 (95%CI 2930.64–3691.39) than females, the difference in prevalence with regard to sex is insignificant (Male vs Female: 53.3% vs. 57.8%, respectively) Table 1. The pattern of infection with respect to parasitaemia...
