Infectious diseases, like malaria, travel where we travel. This spread of disease can be deadly, with an estimated 445,000 malaria-related deaths worldwide in 2016. While mosquitos cannot travel long distances, we can. Further, malaria does not spread only from mosquito to human, but also from human to mosquito. This means that long distance travel can re-introduce malaria to areas in which the disease has already been eradicated.
