World Malaria Day

KDAH

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 developing malaria by taking steps to prevent it. If you are planning to travel to a malaria-endemic zone, talk to your doctor several weeks before you leave to know if you need to take any precautions or vaccinations. #WorldMalariaDay #malariaawareness #Malariatreatment
