The size of the circles represents malaria prevalence, with P. vivax in blue and P. falciparum in red. b Percentage of Plasmodium cases by qPCR in the four study communities. El Pedregal had the highest prevalence while Ricaurte had the lowest. c P. vivax and P. falciparum prevalence. P. vivax was the most prevalent parasite in the study area. El Guadual had the highest amount of P. falciparum infections. d Parasitaemia distribution in the four study communities. Parasitaemia varied between 1 and 800 parasites/µl
