World Malaria Day


Malaria is a serious disease that occurs when a person is bitten by a mosquito infected with certain malaria parasites. These malaria parasites are injected into the bloodstream when the mosquito bites. If left untreated, these can cause serious health issues including seizures, trouble breathing, brain damage, organ failure, and death. You can lower your risk of malaria by using insect repellent, covering up with long sleeves, pants, and socks when outdoors, using mosquito nets, removing standing water, using window and door screens to keep mosquitoes out of your home, etc. #WorldMalariaDay #MalariaAwareness #PreventionIsKey #StaySafe #HealthProtection
