Hi,

Thank you for getting back.

I have seen both reports.

The second report dated 24th April is negative, which is a good news. The plasmodium infection has got cured.

The first report dated 21st April showed positive, when infection was present.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
