In the small village of Musina in the Far Northern Transvaal, a revolutionary piece of scientific progress has been made that can save millions of people’s lives.
This is especially true for young children who die in large numbers every year due to malaria that could not be determined in time.
According to the two doctors, they have developed a practical application to “divide” malaria which helps to reduce the spread of parasites and thereby reduce the transmission of mosquitoes.
A test is performed on the patient who indicates very soon whether malaria is present or not.
The system has also aroused the interest of world leaders in the field of malaria research, which has now made R22 million available
Malaria infects almost 250 million people annually, of which about 500,000 die from the infection each year.
The two doctors, Benji Pretorius and Richard Schmidt, apparently want to continue their work to combat the dreaded disease.
