What is Malaria?

  • Malaria is a disease caused by a parasite. The parasite is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

A person can contract Malaria in ways other than being bitten by a mosquito:

  • An infected mother may transmit Malaria to the fetus.
  • Blood transfusions from an infected person.
  • Sharing needles with an infected person.

Symptoms:

Symptoms begin to appear within weeks of exposure to a mosquito bite, and the period may extend to about a month. Symptoms include:

  • High body temperature and shivering.
  • Heavy sweating.
  • headache.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Diarrhea

Prevention of Malaria:

  • Control of mosquitos.
  • Wearing long-sleeved clothes and covering the legs, especially in places where insects are common, in addition to using insect repellent creams.
  • Putting mesh nets on doors and windows; to prevent the entry of insects.
  • Avoid traveling to places where Malaria is common as much as possible.
  • Ensure taking Malaria preventive medicines in case of travelling to Malaria-endemic areas two weeks before travelling.
