World Mosquito Day
It may seem odd that we have a World Mosquito Day, when mosquitoes are the ones responsible for transmitting malaria. This is the purpose of this day: to raise awareness about this issue so more people can be protected and safe. It is important to remember that all animals and other creatures have an important part in the circle of existence, regardless if they are harmful.
World Mosquito Day was established to celebrate the discovery of the connection between humans and malaria. This discovery has had a significant impact on the health industry, making it possible to protect humans.
Malaria is a disease transmitted by mosquitoes and is caused when a parasite infects the host. Although it is preventable and can be curable, millions of people still suffer from the disease. Important to remember that malaria is not transmitted by all mosquitoes. Only infected female anopheles can transmit it to humans.
Perhaps you are wondering how malaria is transmitted from a mosquito to humans. It’s as easy as a mosquito bite. If you are bitten by a mosquito that has malaria, it will release the parasite into your bloodstream. This can spread to other parts of your body. Because mosquitoes are most active at night, dusk and dawn, they don’t bite during the day. It is vital to ensure that you are protected at all times.
According to the latest statistics, approximately 435,000 people are affected by malaria each year. This is in addition to the estimated 219 million cases worldwide of malaria each year. These numbers are quite alarming. Many people don’t realize how serious this problem is, particularly those who live in areas not at high risk.
Over 100 countries can be found with malaria. Malaria is most common in tropical regions. However, around 70% of malaria cases in the world are concentrated in just 11 countries. India is the one and Africa the other.
It is important to take precautions if you plan to travel to a country with a high malaria risk. Use a mosquito net and repellent to protect yourself. You can also take malaria pills. It is best to make an appointment with your doctor prior to you travel to ensure that you are protected and prepared.
