In this forum there are a lot of questions about malaria and dengue. And especially if it is virulent in Java and Bali. Today in the Jakarta post there was a article about malaria outbreaks in Papua but also
[...] A similar concern was expressed by Fatima Resmiati, the head of the Environment Sanitation Unit of the West Java Health Office. She encouraged anyone planning to visit Sukabumi, Cianjur, Garut, Tasikmalaya and Ciamis regencies to take the malaria tablets chloroquine or primaquine beforehand. The disease has claimed four lives and infected 461 people in Sukabumi regency so far this year [...]"There are two elongated lagoons in the regencies Sukabumi and Garut that are believed to be the breeding places for the anopheles mosquito" [...[ Some 206 malaria cases have been detected in Cibalong district in Garut regency from January until June, but there have been no deaths reported

Beste Sepp,

Je hebt gelijk, de kans is klein, zeer klein, dat je dit kan oplopen als toerist. maar de sprookjes dat er geen malaria zou zijn op Java moeten ook eens uit de wereld worden geholpen. Zonder nu iemand aan het schrikken te brengen, denk ik dat dit probleem in de komende tijd zal verergeren.

Ai, now i said it in Dutch in a English language forum.
Again:
Dear Sepp,

you are right, the chance is remote, very remote, that you will be contenminated as a tourist. But the fairytales that there is no malaria on Java have also to be eredicated. I have no intent to scare people more, but i think this problem will grow in the future
