World Malaria Day – Efforts to Control Malaria

Malaria, a fatal disease is naturally transmitted through the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito. Malaria is usually found in tropical and subtropical climates where the parasites that cause it live and dwell. The malaria mosquitoes cause severe effects to humans and other animals causing malaria fever (malaria bukhar), vomiting, and headaches and in severe cases it can cause yellow skin, coma, or even death. As of 2015, 91 countries were confirmed of having a malaria transmission out of which mostly were African Sub-Sahara and the Indian subcontinent.

In a healthy individual, it takes at least 2-3 weeks for the infection to show its impact. Initially, the malaria symptoms (malaria ke lakshan) may include a severe headache, constant fever, shivering and joint pain leading to more serious complications like jaundice and convulsions. In most victims, symptoms of malaria (मलेरिया के लक्षण) similar to flu-like signs and viral diseases are also quite common. If not treated in the early stages, it can also cause coma while in extreme cases proving fatal. In most cases, Malaria deaths are associated with brain damage, breathing problems and in some intense cases kidney and liver failure. In technical terms, malaria is caused by plasmodium parasites and its spread to the humans through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. Once bitten, the parasite penetrates the bloodstream and moves to the liver. In the liver, the parasites with other necessary supplies develop and re-enters the bloodstream attacking the red blood cells making the victim vulnerable to deadly disease. Although Malaria disease is entirely treatable, taking steps for its prevention should always be the primary motto. The chief objective of treatment of malaria is to ensure a rapid and complete elimination of the Plasmodium parasite, one of the main causes of malaria.
