Following publication of the original article [1], the authors advised of two errors present in the article: one concerning two author names and the other missing funding details.

The errors are:

  1. 1.

    The named authors of ‘Jetsumon Prachumsri’ and ‘Kirakorn Kirabittir’ are incorrect and should read respectively as:

    ‘Jetsumon Sattabongkot’ and ‘Kirakorn Kiattibutr’

  1. 2.

    Under the ‘Study area’ sub-section of the ‘Methods’ section, this sentence is missing funding details:

  • “As part of a concurrent longitudinal study in the area, prevalence by microscopy in the three villages was found to be 0.71%, 0.89% and 0.27% in January, May and November 2016, respectively (Fig. 1); all infections were caused by Plasmodium vivax.”

However, the sentence should read as:

  • “As part of a concurrent longitudinal study in the area from Mahidol University (ICEMR and D43 funded Projects U19AI0819672 and D43TW006571), prevalence by microscopy in the three villages was found to be 0.71%, 0.89% and 0.27% in January, May and November 2016, respectively (Fig. 1); all infections were caused by Plasmodium vivax.”

The authors apologize for these errors.
