Overheard: I get malaria every couple of months, then I go to the doctor and get the pills.
When I asked my (English) diving instructor in Mozambique whether he recommends taking the prophlaxic, he told me he gets malaria about 3 times a year and when he does he goes to the doctor, takes the medicine and a few days later he’s OK again.
