World Malaria Day
Malaria is a communicable disease that is caused when a person is bitten by an infective female anopheles mosquito. Once bitten it takes between 9 to 14 days for signs of malaria to manifest in the patients body.
Some of the signs of malaria are;fever,headache,chills,provided sweating as well as pains in the bones,weakness, feeling nausea,vomiting, diarrhoea, cough particularly in children and loss of appetite.
In Ghana the record of malaria cases stands at about 3.5million annually and children are the most vulnerable. It is therefore advice that persons especially children with the signs of malaria be taken to the nearest health facility for treatment. Malaria can kill if early treatment is not administered to the patient.
