What Is Malaria?

Malaria is caused by a type of parasite known as Plasmodium. There are many different types of Plasmodia parasites, but only 5 cause malaria in people. The Plasmodium parasite is mainly spread by female Anopheles mosquitoes, which mainly bite at dusk and at night. When an infected mosquito bites a person, it passes the parasites into the bloodstream. Malaria can also be spread through blood transfusions and the sharing of needles, but this is very rare.

 

What Are The Symptoms Of Malaria?

The symptoms of malaria typically develop within 10 days to 4 weeks following the infection. In some cases, symptoms may not develop for several months. Some malarial parasites can enter the body but will be dormant for long periods of time. This is why prevention is so important. Common symptoms include chills, fever, sweating, headache, nausea, vomiting and many other unpleasant symptoms.

 

Where Am I Likely To Catch Malaria?

Malaria is found in more than 100 countries, mainly in tropical regions of the world, including areas of Africa, Asia, Central and South America, Haiti, the middle east and some pacific islands. Malaria is not found in the UK – it may be diagnosed in travellers who return to the UK from risk areas. This is why continuing taking generic malarone tablets for 1 week after returning from your trip is so important as the infection could be dormant.
