Recognize and prevent malaria on Global Malaria Day 2023

On April 25, people around the world commemorate World Malaria Day. The parasite that causes malaria is carried to humans by mosquitoes. The parasite enters the human body through the bite of an infected mosquito.

Malaria is an infectious disease that can cause high fever, chills, exhaustion, and other uncomfortable symptoms. In addition to this, some people also have other symptoms such as headaches, nausea, chest pain, muscle pain, exhaustion, coughing, and an incessant flow of sweat. It is necessary for us to gain an understanding of what causes malaria and how to avoid contracting the disease.

The culprit here is the pesky mosquito

Mosquitoes are the vectors for the sickness known as malaria. When a mosquito bites a person who is afflicted with the parasite, the parasite also enters the mosquito’s body. After some time has passed, the parasite can be passed on to a healthy person by the same mosquito that bit the sick individual.

After they have successfully entered our bodies, these parasites can travel to the liver, where they can lie latent for up to a year. When they reach a certain size, they begin to have an effect on the red blood cells in the body, which leads to the gradual onset of the symptoms of malaria.
