Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease that can be life-threatening if you don’t treat it in time. It is caused by a family of parasites who attack the red blood cells in a human body and lead to symptoms like fever, chills, and diarrhea. Although the disease a lot more common in Africa than in other regions, it’s important for everyone to be aware of malaria causes, symptoms, and treatment.
Like other countries, African countries are also commemorating Africa Malaria Day on 25th April this year to control the rapid spread of malaria.
Just a couple of years ago, an estimated 219 million cases of malaria occurred worldwide. 200 million people in the African Region were affected by malaria.
