Anti-Mosquito|Say “No” to Malaria

In the hot summer, mosquitoes are very active. Mosquito prevention is an important step to prevent malaria. Do you know why mosquito prevention is closely related to malaria?

Malaria is a life-threatening infectious disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. When Anopheles mosquito bites a malaria patient, the malaria parasite will enter the mosquito with the patient's blood, and after a period of development and reproduction, the mosquito's body will be covered with malaria parasites, at which time the mosquito bite will be infected with malaria. Typical malaria symptoms include chills, fever and sweating, sometimes accompanied by vomiting, diarrhea, generalized pain and other symptoms.

As one of the major global infectious disease, malaria has always been a threat to human health. According to the latest World malaria report, in 2020, there were an estimated 241 million cases of malaria and an estimated 627,000 malaria deaths worldwide. Of the six global regions classified by WHO, the African region is the most severely affected by malaria, in 2020, the region was home to 95% of all malaria cases and 96% of malaria deaths globally. Children under 5 accounted for about 80% of all malaria deaths in the region.

However, malaria is actually a preventable and curable disease. Over the past 20 years, effective vector control and the use of preventive antimalarial drugs have had a major impact in reducing the global burden of this disease . In addition, early diagnosis and treatment of malaria can reduce transmission and prevent deaths.
