Malaria: Uganda's silent killer

As report shows twice as many people dying worldwide as previously thought, African nation remains one of the worst hit.

    New research published in the British science journal The Lancet shows malaria kills twice as many people as previously thought.

    The report states 1.2 million people were actually affected by the disease.

    But, accurate figures about infection rates are hard to find as not all cases of malaria are documented.

    Uganda has one of the highest number of people known to be infected with the disease.
