The third paragraph from the end of this news article by Polly Ghazi (7 April, p 813) wrongly represented Professor Andy Haines's views on malaria. He was reported as saying that malaria was an airborne disease; it is of course vector borne. He has also told us that it is unlikely that climate change will result in malaria becoming a substantial health problem in the United Kingdom in the future, although the possibility of small outbreaks cannot be excluded.
