Sarasota, Florida, residents react to malaria outbreak


Gene Abrams sat in the shade in Newtown Estates Park, about two miles from the site of the malaria outbreak in Sarasota County. He didn’t even know there was an explosion. Abrams said no one in her social circle was talking about it, and she hadn’t seen anything about malaria cases on social media.

After being homeless for six months after losing her job in food management, Abrams, of Sarasota, spends almost all of her time outdoors. Without money for food, he cannot protect himself from mosquitoes. His immediate needs for survival come before protection from malaria.

“It’s embarrassing,” Abrams said with tears in his eyes. “I do not like. I have to keep weapons to be safe.
