So here are some numbers out of Africa regarding COVID-19 cases along with malaria statistics.

All these countries have high malaria deaths…

(1) Burkina Faso had 30,500 deaths in 2017

(2) Sierra Leone estimated deaths are 17,000 annually

(3) 15,000 estimated deaths in Mali per year

(4) DRC reported 435,000 deaths from malaria in 2017

(5) Niger reached 17,919 deaths in 2018 from malaria illnesses

(6) Guinea had an estimated 7,600 deaths from malaria in 2017

(7) Ghana has an estimated 11,880 deaths annually from malaria

(8) Malawi reported an estimated 8,090 deaths in 2018 to the W.H.O.

(10) Uganda has 10,500 deaths annually.

(9) Around 300,000 deaths per year in Nigeria from malaria

(11) In Tanzania, 80,000 die from malaria on average

But a very low death rate from COVID-19 and I highly doubt they are practicing social distancing and wearing masks. So could Anti-Malaria drugs be helping keep these numbers down? If so why are they not using a well known Anti-Malaria drug Hydroxychloroquine in the US? Why is the Left and the Media so hellbent on not allowing this drug to be used? Social Media pulling any and every story posted promoting it. Doctors being fired for promoting it after they have had positive results from its use.
