Among the children less than one year of age, the prevalence of mixed Plasmodium infection was 124 pc. For children one year and above, the prevalence of mixed Plasmodium infection was 227 pc. There was a statistically significant difference between these two prevalence rates of mixed Plasmodium infection.
