Medicine’s Brian Grimberg describes probability of catching malaria following recent outbreak

5 people contract malaria within U.S. borders — first such cases in two decades

The Washington Post: Brian Grimberg, associate professor of pathology and international health at the School of Medicine, said the risk of catching malaria is “extremely low,” following a recent outbreak in the U.S., but noted that Americans should be aware of the possibility and take steps to prevent mosquito bites. “It’s not panic time,” he said. “I think the message is to be aware. I mean, Americans never think about malaria unless they travel abroad.”
