"Last year, Uzbekistan and Paraguay received certification as malaria-free countries, and this assembly will be joined by Argentina and Algeria, congratulations to both countries", said the director general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
This means that there has not been a single case of anyone catching the disease in either country over the past three years.
This is important news since malaria remains one of the world's leading killers, with an estimated 219 million cases and over 400,000 malaria-related deaths reported in 2017.

World Health Organization said there were now 38 countries and territories that have been declared free of the disease, which has been making a comeback globally.
He said, "their success serves as a model for other countries working to end this disease once and for all".
In the 1970s, Argentina set out to eliminate malaria. Elimination was achieved by training health workers to spray homes with insecticides, diagnosing the disease through microscopy, and effectively responding to cases in the community.
