Malaria is a group of infectious diseases that are transmitted to humans through bites by female Anopheles mosquitoes. Biting such mosquitoes transmit parasites through the blood which enter the human liver at the end. Reproducing in the liver, parasites cause fever, pain and chills. Malaria can also lead to coma or death. However, the disease is preventable and treatable.
