Technology will save us

Malaria is the worlds number one killer. If perhaps maybe something (which is always either left unspecified, or specified in some kind of insanely overcomplicated conspiracy like the plot of a bad movie) where to happen and this not be as successful as hoped then, no, that does not mean we should not try to destroy this deadly parasite. We could have done it an awful lot sooner and so saved many many live had DDT not been banned, but it was and the anti-human wing of the green movement is not going to let it become legal again that is not an option. Just wait for the anti-human brigade to find something so that millions continue to be killed when we have the technology to prevent it. Probably pointing and shouting hysterically, "GM, science, Yuck. Progress is bad, we fear change."
