Malaria and the complications of the disease. This is a mosquitos borne disease that is caused by microorganisms known as Plasmodium. Symptoms typically include fever, fatigue, headaches and vomiting. The complications can be remembered with the mnemonic " MALARIA".
Did you know that malaria causes over approximately 600,000 deaths annually? Researchers have sequenced 16 genomes of Anopheles mosquito species. There are hundreds of Anopheles species, but only some species contain the malaria parasite and are accountable for the human transmissions.
