Mali surprised me - I assumed it would be too dry for there to be many mosquitoes. Depressing quiz though.

The northern half of Mali is rather dry but the southern part of the country is jungle

I was surprised by Yemen (thought it would be too dry) and Venezuela (never thought it was a big problem in S. America).

There is a significant chunk of highland Yemen that has a seasonal tropical/monsoon climate thanks to a very light rainshadow effect. I'd assume that despite the near-desert conditions, every year seasonal rainfall and tropical temperatures are just enough to breed mosquitoes and malaria.

Surprised that Central African Republic missed out, that's where I got Malaria and I wasn't the only one.

But, to be fair, you wouldn't have been part of the statistics. It's malaria deaths, not malaria cases. I think these countries are the triangle in the middle of a venn diagram where the three circles are overpopulation, warm climate, and third world economy.

You are probably correct 'tschutzer', although I think malaria causes so much hardship among the population even though many more suffer from it then die.

Yeah imagine accidentally making people aware of stuff that might potentially be useful information. Quizzes are supposed to be about guessing and feeling proud of yourself if you get 100%.

I wonder if sickelcell deaths are included, which is a directly related to Malaria immunity,

It isn't. And it's 'sickle cell', by the way.

Maybe don't say Countries outside of Africa, because India falls in that category although it is in the majority category.

Mostly. But the population is crammed mostly in to the southwest corner of the country which is pretty swampy in the areas by the coast.

Yes because it is both in the top 11 outside of Africa and the top 11 overall.
