Malaria Information/Prevention:

Malaria is transmitted by the female Anopheles Mosquito (1 in every 100 mosquitoes are Anopheles). Parasites injected into the human from an infectious mosquito; travel to the liver where they undergo a multiplication phase. These then enter the blood system where they start multiplying further. In the blood stream the parasites invade red blood cells, feeding on them as they divide, and finally break free, thereby destroying the cells.

 

This risk of malaria can be greatly reduced with simple precautions:

Malaria mosquitoes start biting in the late afternoon. Personal prevention is the best protection against the malaria mosquito:

Use insect repellent on exposed skin – sprays and creams are recommended, not stick or roll-on forms of repellent.

Spray insecticide aerosol inside your room early evening.

 

Sleep under a ceiling fan & keep windows and doors closed after dark.

Wear long sleeves and trousers in the late afternoon/night.
