Malaria is a life-threatening blood disease caused by parasites and is transmitted to humans by theAnopheles mosquito. Once bitten, parasites multiply in the host’s liver before infecting and destroying red blood cells.
The disease can be controlled and treated if diagnosed early on. Unfortunately, this is not possible in some areas of the world lacking in medical facilities, where malaria outbreaks can occur. At the moment, a vaccine for the disease is still yet to be discovered.
