Table 2 Prevalence of symptoms (fever) and specific Plasmodium species by PCR and serology

From: Malaria epidemiology in central Myanmar: identification of a multi-species asymptomatic reservoir of infection

  n Prevalence (95% CIs) Proportion of current infection (%)
Fever 89 4.9 (3.5–7.1) 3/89 (3.4%)
PCR
 Any Plasmodium species 41 2.6 (1.5–4.3) 100a
 P. falciparum 19 (0.4–3.0) 46.3 (28.7–59.1)
 P. knowlesi 16 (0.5–2.2) 39.0 (21.9–51.3)
 P. vivax 7 0.5 (0.1–2.0) 17.1 (2.2–22.2)
 P. malariae 1 0.04 (0.0–0.4) 2.4 (0–7.08)
Seropositive
 P. falciparum 150 9.4 (6.0–15.0)  
 P. vivax 50 3.1 (1.9–6.3)  
  1. aIncludes two mixed infections, one P. falciparum and P.vivax, one P. knowlesi and P. vivax, therefore total percentages may not equal 100%
