Plasmodium vivax is the solitary type of intestinal sickness native to South Korea (1); blend chloroquine and primaquine treatment has been the backbone of vivax jungle fever therapy. After P. vivax reappeared in the wake of being dispensed with in South Korea in the last part of the 1970s, it principally happened in troopers or veterans positioned in the peaceful area between North Korea and South Korea. Due to this center, mass chloroquine chemoprophylaxis has been directed set up for fighters working in high-hazard regions since 1997 (2,3). Nonetheless, there is worry that mass chemoprophylaxis may prompt diminished chloroquine powerlessness (2). Likewise, officers were regularly given lower portions than that suggested by the World Health Organization (WHO); Commons et al. revealed that underdosing of chloroquine was related with repeat and expanded parasite freedom time (PCT) (4). We considered the patterns in South Korea during 2000–2016 for treatment viability based on PCT and fever leeway time (FCT). We explored the clinical viability of chloroquine for Plasmodium vivax intestinal sickness, the changing pattern of parasite freedom time, and fever leeway time during 2000–2016 in South Korea. Middle parasite freedom time and fever leeway time expanded fundamentally ludicrous period. Chloroquine was generally underdosed when used to treat P. vivax jungle fever.
