We have been told for years that malaria will spread because of global warming.
Unfortunately for the alarmists, but fortunately for the rest of us, the reverse is the case.
The Our World in Data recently updated a report, originally published in 2015. According to it, WHO data showed deaths from malaria have fallen by 48% since 2000:
The incidence of malaria has also fallen markedly in most of the countries affected in 2000:
For instance, in Kenya incidence has dropped from 273 to 166 cases per 1000 of population.
You should also note how malaria seems to have been almost totally eradicated in places like Turkey, and much reduced throughout Asia.
They also include this very telling map. Note the green regions, labelled “formerly malarious”:
This does not suggest to me that malaria is spreading because of a slightly warmer climate.

A few malaria facts: No infected humans = no infected mosquitos. Mosquitos are “born” clean and must bite an infected human to acquire the plasmodium, and then it takes several days before the parasite transforms into a transmissible form. Malaria occurred all over the world, including North America and Europe as far north as Siberia! Climate did not kill it out. DDT did. Spraying was continued long enough to eliminate all human carriers. The mosquitos are still here, but the human vectors have either died or were cured. In the chart “Global Malaria Deaths by World Region,” it is evident that Africa needs DDT. India has continued DDT after the ban and to this day. They still have malaria, but it is greatly reduced. If African nations started an aggressive DDT application program on interior wall like India does, they too could reduce malaria to a manageable level.
