Malaria is a plasmodium infection that is caused by a parasite called the plasmodium parasites, in the plasmodium. it is transmitted from people to people by the medium of a carrier mosquito.

When you are a victim to the bite of an infected female Anopheles mosquitoes, then you should immediately see your doctor, get tested, and receive treatment. It is totally preventable and curable. It is prevented with the use of mosquito-repelling materials like the mosquito net, mosquito repellant gels and sprays, and a lot of other repelling materials. Once you notice that you have been bitten by an affected mosquito, it is best to get treated immediately. Because malaria in the body weakens the immunity system and then causes people to fall sick, and sometimes die- Yes! Die. So, have you ever said, "it is just malaria" then you are very wrong? Malaria should be taken with utmost seriousness because it is capable of killing.

At the early stage of an attack, symptoms of malaria in victims include sweating, shivering, and chills, and then it graduates into a high fever, and then all these are followed by sweating and a return to normal temperature. A full-blown malaria requires about a week for it to begin to show symptoms and signs. So once you have been bitten by mosquitoes, don't wait to verify if it was an affected mosquito, or not, take preventive measures. And if you have contacted the parasite, immediately, see the doctor, get drugs and take it according to the prescription of the doctor or pharmacist. But typically malaria is not gotten from every mosquito, but only from those that have the parasite already.

Note that only the Anopheles mosquito can transmit malaria. And that an unaffected Anopheles mosquito can acquire the parasites, the moment it sucks blood from a human with malaria. This is what increases the population of mosquitoes with the parasite.
