  • Hello class! Today we will be learning about Malaria.
  • Malaria occurs in us humans. A person receives this disease by getting bitten by an infected mosquito.
  • Where does this occur?
  • Malaria takes about 2 weeks of treatment to be cured. When an infected mosquito bites a human, the parasite enters the bloodstream, travels to the liver, multiplies, and invades the red blood cells. Next, the parasite lays eggs and multiplies until the cell bursts. An unaffected mosquito becomes infected once it feeds on an infected person.
