Malaria affects between 154 million and 289 million people worldwide. Mosquitos are the main transmitters of malaria. Malaria is most common in Africa, South America and Asia. No one ever becomes fully immune to malaria. Malaria symptoms are fever, chills, muscle aches and vomiting. Severe cases of malaria include confusion, seizures, anaemia, kidney failure and comas if not treated immediately. Ways of preventing malaria include taking anti-malaria medication, using mosquito lotion or spray or sleeping under a permethrin treated bed net.
