I don't know if this has broken in the US, but Auntie Beeb has reported it.

Malaria "Completely Stopped" by Microbe

Microsporidian MB

Microsporidia are parasitic fungus found mainly in cells of the gut epithelium of insects and the skin and muscles of fish. They also occur in other invertebrates. Infection is characterized by enlargement of the affected tissue.

Microsporidians have minute spores that contain the infective parasite
(sporoplasm). When spores are ingested by a new host, the organisms enter the gut epithelium and reach specific tissues through the bloodstream. In the host cells they grow and repeatedly divide asexually. The mature parasites (trophozoites) eventually give rise to sexually produced zygotes that produce new spores.

Microsporidia MB could be activating the mosquito's immune system to fight off the infection and as a by-product, making it inhospitable for the malaria parasite

Voila...!!! Malaria could be defeated. There's a way to go on this yet, but signs are encouraging.
