What Causes Malaria and Typhoid and How Is Malaria Transmitted

The causative agent of both is not the same therefore, their treatment cannot be the same. Malaria is mainly caused By Mosquitoes Bite and not any kind of mosquito but the Female Anolephose Mosquito which must have been infected.

The Female Anonephose mosquito bites you and sucks your blood in order to keep their eggs alive and remain vibrant, after which they will pass to you a parasite called plasmodium which will later multiply and develop to the Malaria sickness we know.

A friend of mine once said that, If that the mosquito will only bite and leave that it would have been better, Yes that the truth. Because there would have not been anything called Malaria.
