Malaria has long been an important health problem. In 1932, soon after the lower part of Chang Jiang (Yangtze) was flooded, an epidemic of malaria occurred, with 60% incidence and 300,000 deaths. Before 1949, an estimation showed that half of the total population was at risk of infection, 70% of the counties were endemic of malaria, and 30 million cases occurred yearly.
