What is the Cure and prevention of Malaria?
Mosquitoes DO spread malaria, it is a mosquito borne disease, caused by a eukaryotic protist of the genus Plasmodium. After a period of between two weeks and several months (occasionally years) spent in the liver, the malaria parasites start to multiply within red blood cells, causing symptoms that include fever, and headache. In severe cases the disease worsens leading to hallucinations, coma, and death. There is no cure for malaria, just treatment and prevention.
