It is noteworthy that The Guardian, a British daily newspaper, reports on the concerns of African doctors who draw attention to the fact that coronavirus and malaria have similar symptoms. According to experts, this may provoke further active spread of both diseases in the future.

Chances are the global pandemic of the novel coronavirus will lead to new epidemics of diseases which medicine has already faced with – such as measles, poliomyelitis, cholera, meningitis, Ebola fever and others. This statement was made by Leslie Roberts, a Canadian television and radio personality. He believes that suspension of vaccination is the main problem of the current situation.

“In fact, suspension of mass vaccination in many countries is a terrible choice with only one, rather sad explanation: it is simply impossible to protect everyone,” he said.

It is noteworthy that The Guardian, a British daily newspaper, reports on the concerns of African doctors who draw attention to the fact that coronavirus and malaria have similar symptoms. According to experts, this may provoke further active spread of both diseases in the future.

It is also noted that a new Ebola case has been recently recorded in the territory of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Back in 2018, the virus triggered a serious epidemic. It happened exactly at that moment when experts were about to declare an official end to the outbreak of this disease. In addition, malaria cases have recently increased dramatically in the same Congo.

According to experts, as COVID-19 spreads, almost extinct but still quite dangerous diseases are likely to become more active. It is explained by the fact that all the world's public health services are being focused on fighting the new threat. Experts add that under these conditions many other deadly viruses and diseases might become more intense.
