Following publication of the original article , the authors flagged an error in the following sentence: "Plasmodium falciparum strains with deleted Pfhrp2 gene, which is less detectable by many currently available RDTs, would then have an advantage over the P. vivax strains in the face of control strategies based increasingly on RDTs and post-diagnostic treatment only policy".
Namely, the sentence previously (incorrectly) referred to "‘wild-type’ P. falciparum strains" instead of "P. vivax strains".
The authors thank you for reading this corrections and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
