### What is the risk of getting malaria in Mexico?

Considering that in the United States there were 1,925 malaria
cases reported during 2011, and during the same year there were
1,124 cases in Mexico, the probability of getting malaria is slim
to none. The odds would be as follows:
Odds of contracting malaria in the United States: 1 in
160,000
Odds of contracting malaria in Mexico: 1 in 100,000
And for comparison purposes, other odds are provided:
Odds of dying due to a lighning strike: 1 in 84,000
Odds of dying due to a snake bite or bee sting: 1 in
100,000
Odds of dying due to an earthquake: 1 in 130,000
So, there is actually a higher possibility of dying by a
lightning strike than to catch malaria in Mexico.
