Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by a
parasite. People with malaria often experience fever,
chills, and flu-like illness. Left untreated, they may
develop severe complications and die. Most people think that
Malaria is always associated with poverty; well in fact it
is not as the disease causes a lot of economic problems for
the developing countries.
Malaria can be found in warmer regions of the world.
Countries with warmer temperature have the high risk of
having the disease because Anopheles usually thrives in warm
climates. Malaria occurs in more than 100 countries. Some
government’s like those in the northern part of United
States, southern Europe, Singapore, Taiwan and all of the
Caribbean islands manage to eliminate Malaria.
