Spread rates have been pretty slow in Africa and Latin America. Could it be that enough patients take chloroquinine for malaria or malaria prophylaxis that there is a large body of people who can neither get or transmit because they are on this drug?

The warm and hot weather helps too.

Sounds plausible that at minimum it could be a factor.

Someone in another thread alluded to a map showing low rates of CV in malaria-prone areas. But yes, your supposition seems quite likely.
