Malaria: Under The Microscope
Malaria is caused by the parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. It is transmitted from person to person through the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito. When the mosquito bites, the parasite is deposited into the victim’s bloodstream and travels to the liver where it multiplies. Although malaria is preventable, it claimed the lives of over 600,000 victims in 2022, the majority of whom were children.
