Two people from Tatarstan, Russia tested positive for malaria after returning from Zanzibar, Tanzania, according to Russian media.
The Department for Rospotrebnadzor in the Republic of Tatarstan said one person died.
“The holidaymakers went on a safari, it was pouring heavily and because of this, they could not return to the hotel. The hunters spent the night in the open desert and noticed that there were a lot of mosquitoes”, press secretary Milyausha Zamalieva said.
Zamalieva also said the individuals could not not infect others, including the passengers of the plane on which he returned to Kazan, because malaria is transmitted only through blood-sucking insects.
The tourists did not have insect repellents, which the Rospotrebnadzor of the Republic of Tatarstan recommends to carry with them when traveling to hot tropical countries.
