Malaria is a mosquito borne infectious disease of humans and other animals caused by parasitic protozoans (single called organisms called plasmodium) that thrives in the red cells of the victim.
Commonly, the disease is transmitted via a bite from an infected female Anopheles mosquito (so na female day cause am), which introduces the organisms from its saliva into the person’s circulatory system. In the blood, the protists travel to the liver to mature and reproduce. As the process continues so does the sickness spread.
