The symptoms and stages of Malaria are more complex than you may think. This makes it more difficult when having to incubate/isolate from others and knowing when you are fine to leave.

Malaria is primarily spread through vectors, i.e mosquitos, thus meaning countries where malaria exists are areas like South Africa & South America. Whilst Malaria is transmitted through mosquitoes, it’s only the female anopheles mosquito.

Malaria has originated for many years, and humans may have originally caught it from ‘Plasmodium Falciparum’ (a specific parasite) from gorillas.
