Colombia is a country that is located in northwest South America.It has a population of 47 million people and the capital is Bogota.
Malaria is transmitted to humans form the Anopheles mosquito. Once the disease enters the blood stream the protozoantarget red blood cells and cause them to burst simeaultaneouslyreleasing millions more protozoan.
Some of the general symptoms are . fever of 106 . Headaches . muscular pain . nausea . muscle aches . tiredness . chills . shaking chills Check out Related link for specific symptoms.
You can get Malaria near places that have a reputation of having a very high mosquito population. If u don't know why mosquitoes are involved with Malaria, that's because Malaria is a disease caused by a mosquito affected by Malaria. When one bites you, u get the disease.
Some symptoms of malaria include high fever, headache, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, profuse sweating as body temperature falls and moderate to severe shaking chills.
It can give you: -Chills -Fever -Enlargement of the spleen -Weakness -Profuse sweating -Loss of appetite -Kidney failure -And possible coma
I know a man who caught malaria while traveling in the Far East. His symptoms he told are typical. Heavy perspiring, ie the sweats. So much a mattress would be drenched in sweat. High fever over 103 , fatigue and malaise. These symptoms are periodic. That is they go away and come back every few mont…hs. IOW for example three months symptom free, 3 months symptomatic. Okay its not that regular. The term for symptoms coming and going on a regular bass is intermittent. (MORE)
malaria normally creates: fever chills shaking extreme sweat fatigue discomfort body aches headache nausea and vomiting
Chills, profuse sweating, weakness, loss of appetite, kidney failure & possible coma. It still kills about a million people annually.
\nCurrently there is no proven vaccine for malaria.\n. \nUsually medicine is prescribed that protects you against malaria. You take it periodically while you are in an area that has mosquitoes that spread malaria.
It can be caused by mosquitoes biting you, sucking your blood and passing the disease around as it bites you. Mosquitoes can be common it hot countries like: Egypt, Hawaii etc.. Improve: The mosquito transfers a protozoan called a Plasmodium into your body, this protozoan causes the disease.
\n. \n bugs from southwest asia. \n. \n-Unknown-\n. \nMalaria has been infecting humans for at least 50,000 years, and may have existed as a pathogen in other species for even longer. For this reason it is impossible to know where the first cases of malaria appeared. While the earliest refe…rences to a malaria-like illness come from China, that is by no means an indication that malaria originated in Asia. (MORE)
In the early stages, malaria symptoms are sometimes similar to those of many other infections caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Symptoms may include: Fever Chills Headache Sweats Fatigue Nausea and vomiting
Malaria is one of the most deadliest disease due to its nature. Thevirus is said to have the ability to multiply rapidly in thevictims blood.
family effects on malaria can cause bad dammage in the way you live. if your mum or dad works and they catch malaria it can stop you from getting money to help support your family.
From Medieval Italian mala aria meaning literally, "Bad Air." The disease was also called ague or marsh fever because it was associated with swamps and marshy lands. The swamps and marshes of the "New World" were tantamount to a death sentence for the sailors and adventurers of the time.
Malaria is caused by any one of five types of Plasmodium parasite, transmitted via female Anopholes mosquito bites. Of these five types, Plasmodium Falciparum causes the most extreme and potentially fatal illness. A mosquito feeding upon the blood of an infected host can ingest a number of these pa…rasites. They develop within the mosquito and are secreted through its saliva to infect other potential hosts when bitten. Once inside a human host, they can spend a protracted period (from weeks or months to, potentially, years) inside the liver before eventually reproducing in the blood (specifically, within the red blood cells).

he malaria parasite, Plasmodium, is a small, single-cell organism (protozoan) that lives as a parasite in man and a specific species of mosquito (Anopheles). There are four different types of malaria parasite: Plasmodium falciparum is the cause of fatal malaria, while Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ov…ale and Plasmodium malariae cause more benign types of malaria. Falciparum malaria can kill, but the other forms are much less likely to prove fatal. There are several stages in the life cycle of the parasite , and by and large these are the same for all four types. (MORE)

Anyone who gets infected by a female anopheles mosquito, but some people are more resistant to the infection than others. People who are carriers of the sickle cell trait, or who are carriers of thalassemia, are more resistant to catching malaria than the general population. This is why these diseas…es are more prevalent in people whose ancestry comes from parts of the world where malaria is prevalent, such as Africa, the Mediterranean, and South Asia. (MORE)
Malaria is transmitted by female mosquitoes typically in Africa and surrounding countries. The female mosquitoes only want blood for their young, like any other female mosquito, but their particular species contains a chemical called Plasmodium phalsiparum which makes them deadly. The female mosquit…o lands on human skin, and removes blood. In this process, the mosquito's saliva contaminates the human host's blood stream with Plasmodium phalsiparum. The chemical then causes malaria in the human host. (MORE)
when female anopheles mosquito take a blood meal from a host with malaria, the mosquitoe took the malaria bacteria's gametes with the blood meal. the gamestes fused together in the mosquitoe's gut forming the infected stage. if the mosquito then bit a non infected human host, the infected stage of t…he bacteria will enter the bloodstream vai the salivary gland of the mosquito.

because malaria is only spread by bitting blood spreading animals malaria is in places like Africa and i hate to break it too you but mosquitos cant fly across oceans or from the gobi desert so don't sweat it the possibillity that we'll all be quarentiend due to malaria is too slim hope i helped and… just take it out of youre mind unless your nextdoor neheibor is creating robot nuclear mosquitos to abolish the worlds population for creative control (MORE)
British "ColUmbia"is in Canada ColOmbia the country is a country with NOOOO association to Britain/British etc..
There are several different types so it varies. But the main type, is generally lethal if left untreated.
it hasn't been developed. its a virus from the protista kingdom. so it cannot be healed only managed. Viruses don't leave your body once you get them. they just lay dormant inside your body after they have been healed. they're virtually impossible to kill
Malaria is an infectious disease caused by a parasite (of the genusPlasmodium) and spread mostly by a particular mosquito (Anopheles).The saliva from the bite of the infected female mosquito infectsthe blood which carries the parasite to the liver where it matures. The disease is common in tropical …areas of Asia, Africa, and theAmericas since these have a favorable environment for the mosquito;mortality rates in severe cases are about one in five. Estimateddeaths approximate a million a year, most of which are children. The disease is preventable and treatable through medication;preventative measures include mosquito control techniques. (MORE)
The malaria enters the bloodstream through the salivary glands of the mosquito. In its Sporozoite form, it enters the liver, where they change into merezoites and infect blood cells. There is a cycle as the mereozoites reproduce asexually within the red blood cells, causing them to rupture, and crea…ting new merezoites. Some merezoites will from gametocytes (of which there are male and female versions). A mosquito that feeds from the human may pick these up, and the gametocytes will form gametes, which then form ookinete. This penetrates the gut wall of the mosquito and froms an oocyst. This will release more sporozoites which enter the salivary glands of the mosquito, waiting to be injected into another human/mammal. (MORE)
Malaria is caused by a parasite referred to as Plasmodium, that is transmitted via the bites of infected mosquitoes. within the shape, the parasites multiply within the liver, then infect red blood cells. Usually, individuals get protozoal infection by being bitten by associate infective feminine An…opheles dipteran. solely Anopheles mosquitoes will transmit protozoal infection and that they should are infected through a previous provender taken on associate infected person. once a dipteran bites associate infected person, atiny low quantity of blood is taken during which contains microscopic protozoal infection parasites. regarding one week later, once the dipteran takes its next provender, these parasites combine with the mosquito's spittle and ar injected into the person being bitten. Because the Plasmodium vivax is found in red blood cells of associate infected person, protozoal infection may be transmitted through transfusion, transplantation, or the shared use of needles or syringes contaminated with blood. protozoal infection may additionally be transmitted from a mother to her unborn babe before or throughout delivery ("congenital" malaria).

im flying out to cyprus in october, i have been without a spleen since january 2010, im on medication ,ie; pencillin vk every day , and malaria seems to be mentioned a lot in the forums , could you tell me if malaria can be caught and be severe to me ? thank you paul
It is caused by Anopheles mosquitoes, they live in the tropical andsubtropical regions of the world. Malaria is a parasite that moves through your body after you havebeen bitten from the mosquito that carries this disease. Malaria can also be passed from person to person.
Yes. Malaria is a type of disease. And noun is a person, place, thing or idea. Malaria is a thing. Which means its a noun.
People with sickle cell disease, or who carry sickle cell trait, are said to be resistant to malaria.
N because we are not a very tropical island or contry like Brazil and South America. when you go to these places you get special needles and you need to wear erogard and clothing
Well one thing we need to note is that when a mosquito bites you, it sucks your blood and injects some of its parasites into you. A parasite is something that isn't at all good for us humans, and when a mosquito bites us, the parasites go into our blood and goes all the way to out liver where it kil…ls red blood cells and causes us harm.

Malaria lives in mosquito's found in greater part of Africa, Middle east, South-east Asia, and South America.
Malaria was common in most of the developed countries. They erradicated the mosquitoes, by eliminating the breeding places of mosquitoes. ( Human longevity was increased long, 100 years, before the advent of modern chemotherapy, there.) For that simple method of closed drainage system is required. (… They had it in Harrapan culture.) On stagnant water a thin layer of rock oil or kerosine will kill the larvae of mosquitoes. As they come to surface for breathing. People can be cleared of malaria from liver by radical mass scale treatment. ( A patient developed malaria in USA, after 20 years of visiting endemic zone.) Promt treatment of malaria patint and confining him in mosquito net or sceened house will stop the spread of disease. For that feeling of patreotism is required. (As well as foresight.) (MORE)

Malaria is an infectious and parasitic disease that is generally spread through mosquitoes, which is why it would be unusual (if at all possible) to hear of a case of malaria spread through smoking or tobacco use.
Anyone who goes to malaria infested areas must take a shot for immunity or while in the area take a pill for temporary immunity. Feel free to add to this answer; it is not complete.
Malaria is a mosquito-born infectious disease. It kills around 800,000 people every year. Recent findings have shown that malaria contains chloroplasts - which are typically only found in plant cells, opening up the possibility of targeting the plasmodium with herbicides - which would kill the ma…laria, but not the host. This makes malaria quite unique. (MORE)
well i would advice you to: >maintain cleanliness of the surroundings /Clean your surroundings as much as possible. >drink alot of water >eat alot of vitamin c such as orange and eat also alot of vegetable >proper hygiene > consult a doctor
Yes, malaria is a disease that is generally transmitted from the bite of an infected mosquito. However, it is not passed directly from one person to another.
This should be treated as fast as you can because this disease is very dangerous. To avoid this you should go to doctor as fast as you can to be treated.
mosquitos carry infected blood from those with malaria and when they bite another person the pathogen is passed onto them and they are likely to get malaria :)
Yes. Infection rate is about 8 people per 100,000 inhabitants (about 9280 cases per year). But you should be aware that statistically speaking, it is about the same rate you will find in the United States (0.45 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, or about 1,500 infections per year).
Malaria is a disease passed through the blood of one person to thenext mostly by mosquitos. This is common in tropical, poor area.Africa, Haiti, etc.
