Malaria in India
Malaria has been defined as a mosquito borne disease, which is caused because of a parasite known as plasmodium. It is known to be transmitted from the bite of infected mosquitoes. The disease begins due to a bite of an infected female mosquito known as Anopheles through which plasmodium or protists enters into the circulatory system. Then, in blood, the protists travel towards the liver where it matures and reproduces to increase in number. The main symptoms of this disease include fever, vomiting and headache and this usually appears after 10-15 days of the bite of mosquito.
