What is Malaria?
Malaria is a life-threatening disease. This is usually transmitted through an infected Anopheles mosquito bite. Infected mosquitoes have a Plasmodium parasite. When this mosquito bites you, the parasite is released into your bloodstream.
Malaria infection is usually characterized by recurring attacks with the following signs and symptoms:
Medium to severe shaking cold
Other symptoms and symptoms may include:
Why Malaria is Harmful
Malaria can cause high fever, cold, and flu-like symptoms, which can endanger life if it is not treated properly. This disease is caused by the Plasmodium parasite, which is done by Anopheles mosquitoes.
What will happen in the free of malaria?
Today, the world is better prepared to end death than this disease more than ever. Mobilizing excessive intervention leading interventions has helped the global health community to reduce malaria mortality by 62% in 2000. But, to make sure that we are doing everything, we can win this fight, we need to maintain political leadership and increase financial support.
Following the failed eradication efforts, there was a resurgence of malaria in the late 20th century. Long-lasting insecticide-treated with Bednet and Artemisinin-based combination therapy using a series of such advanced equipment to take control efforts, more than reducing the global burden of disease, but it has more than 445 000 deaths and 200 million cases With high in 2016.
The most common symptom of benign malaria is a very high temperature (fever). However, the absence of fever in a sick person does not exclude the diagnosis of malaria.
Other symptoms of benign malaria include:
Feeling headache, muscular pain, stomachache, cough, tired more than usual and generally feeling unhealthy.
Children are more tired and may have stool (diarrhea) and/or disease (vomiting) in them.
If you have taken anti-malaria medication then you may have different symptoms when you have malaria (for example, back pain).
Can malaria be prevented or avoided?
You can take some steps to avoid getting malaria. To save yourself from receiving it, you should do whatever you need to do to avoid mosquito bites.
Sleep in a room with windows and doors on the screen.
Use mosquito net on your bed.
Net spray with permethrin, a spray that leaves mosquitoes behind. Wear light-colored pants and shirts with long sleeves.
Protect yourself from a bug-resistant spray which does not exceed 35% of a chemical called DEET.
Malaria is suspected in people who have been associated with malaria in the history of local areas (see clinical manifestations). These symptoms, especially in the early stages of infection, are non-specific and are often described as flu. As the disease progresses, the patient can display an extended spleen and/or liver and anemia. Diagnosis is confirmed by the microscope. Fat blood smears are generally more susceptible to parasite detection, while thin smears are better for identifying species.
Symptoms and complications
Symptoms usually appear approximately 1 to 3 weeks after the infection. People with malaria will have many symptoms but usually, they will not have all the following symptoms:
Cold and sweaty
Mode of transmission and incubation period
The malaria parasite is done by the female Anopheles mosquito, which is active in the evenings and evenings. When an infected mosquito bites the human, parasites roam in the bloodstream for about an hour before entering the liver and multiplying.
Avoid mosquito bites
When in malaria areas, taking precautions against mosquito bites include:
Avoid outdoor activity around the evening and early morning when mosquitoes are most active.
Wear loose, long, light-colored clothes.
Use mosquito repellents on exposed skin and clothing.
Do not wear perfume, cologne or aftershave.
Use knockdown spray, mosquito coils, and plug-in evaporation equipment
