Correction to: Malar J (2019) 18:100

Following publication of the original article [1], the corresponding author flagged that the particle ‘de’ in their name had been placed incorrectly.

The particle had been positioned as: Jessica Oliveira de Sousa.

However, the correct positioning is: Jessica de Oliveira Sousa.

As such, the name has now been corrected accordingly in the published article.

The publisher apologizes for this processing error.
