Malaria is an infectious vector-borne disease spread by mosquito bite to humans and other animals caused by Plasmodium group of protozoan parasites. The disease is widespread in tropical and subtropical regions including Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, headaches, fatigue and vomiting. This partial resistance disappears over months to years if there is no ongoing exposure to malaria.
