To sum it all up, malaria is caused by parasite-infected mosquitoes, signs of malaria are basically changes in temperature from colds to fevers, it is diagnosed by extinguishable malaria parasites in the blood and treatment is determined by the severity of the disease, the outcome is usually complete recovery and in some cases, death is the only way out, and preventing malaria is all about preventing mosquitoes Again, malaria is a disastrous disease, one you don’t want to get; one that no one wants to get. Malaria is a disease worth knowing about, because it has killed an immense amount of people.
Thanks to the efforts made for research , and treatments have been made to control the virus. Most importantly, the HIV/AIDS virus cannot replicate violently in the immune system because of these treatments. I think humans hold the real key to cure, if they would think about there actions before they do them, then we can save a lot more lives from the virus and stop the spread of it. Sharing needles with infected individual is a way of acquiring the disease. If we do this the percentage of people with HIV/AIDS will decrease significantly.
If not treated, the disease, especially that caused by protozoa falciparum, will progress to severe malaria. Severe malaria generally results in death. Approximately 90% of of ... ... middle of paper ... ...DT has been in use in malaria control programs since the 1940's and has proved generally effective. The most common use of DDT in preventing the spread of malaria is to spray the backs of chairs and walls of a dwelling with the substance to keep out adult mosquitos who enter the dwelling to feed on those who live there. Though DDT treatments are still an effective way to stop the spread of malaria, some mosquitos have become resistant to the compound and therefore more methods of prevention must be utilized.
P.Ovale, this causes tertian (recurs every second day) malaria in humans. This species is very closely related to both plasmodium falciparum and P.Vivax. P.Ovale has a quite inadequate dispersal. General Life Cycle of the Malaria Parasite: • The female Anopheles mosquito which transmits the malaria parasites feed on the person when the mosquito has pierc... ... middle of paper ... ... to simply stop it from being transported around the body where it will lead to it processing itself to critical stage where it could lead to death, which is the whole reason of why it should be diagnosed and treated by a doctor as soon as possible to eradicate the possibilities of complications and death.

It’s a world class traveler, but it doesn’t have a passport. It’s highly contagious, but it can’t be cured. Ebola: (EBOV) the virus that has captured the attention of viewers worldwide with its recent outbreak. The World Health Organization has confirmed that 5,288 people have recently lost their lives to the contagious virus, and due to the rising death tolls, have marked this outbreak to be the deadliest. The sudden reappearance of EBOV has not only encouraged the continued effort towards containment, but has also sparked another concern: Could this plaguing virus be morphed into a weapon?
Malaria is an ongoing epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa that can be eradicated once the U.S. provides that region with the necessary tools, technology, and chemical solutions. Malaria is disseminated through getting bitten by an Anopheles mosquito that is infected with the disease. Within the span of a few days, an excruciating pain will be experienced by the host, including migraines, puking, fevers, and chills. If not treated immediately, the host may die in a matter of just one day (“Malaria”). This is what happens to the people of sub-Saharan Africa.
This was because U.S. troops in other countries were not on the proper medication, contracted the disease, and brought it back to the United States. Malaria in humans is caused by four species of protozoa, sophisticated one-celled organisms, that can infect red blood cells. These four species are called Plasmodium falciparum, plasmodium vivax, plasmodium malariae, and plasmodium ovale. The worst cases are caused by the Plasmodium falciparum species, which is also the species with the most resistance to drugs. To contract malaria, a mosquito, but not just any mosquito must bite a human.
They multiply in the liver, and then travel back into the blood, where they continue to grow and multiply so quickly that they clog blood vessels and rupture blood cells. When the red blood cells burst, the parasites are released and then attack other red blood cells. Malaria is not contagious, which means one person cannot pass it directly to another. However, if a mosquito that is not infected bites an infected person, it picks up the malaria parasites. In likeness to Aids, the malaria virus can be in your body for up to several months before the initial symptoms develop.
The Malaria itself is presented as a ring shape and ranges between the colors yellow and dark brown and sometimes black. (Basic Malaria Microscopy, 1999) As soon as the malaria parasites hit the blood stream they start killing off red blood cells which causes flu like symptoms such as NVD, chills, tiredness, and muscle aches. Since these are all common symptoms, Malaria may be misdiagnosed at first. If the beginning stages of malaria are not treated severe malaria will start taking place with more severe symptoms including breathing difficulties, low blood sugar and coma. If these symptoms go untreated the disease will lead to death.
Malaria is an extremely deadly parasitic disease transmitted by the bite of a mosquito called plasmodium. This pathogen was discovered a long time ago and since then, a profound study has been made. From the studies made, scientists discovered that plasmodium vivax, plasmodium malariae, plasmodium ovale and falciparum are the four types responsible of human malaria. However, plasmodium vivax and falciparum are the most common (CDC). Malaria has been an issue in many African countries, such as Angola, while in United States it was completely eradicated.
