Although all people are at risk to contract malaria if bitten by the Falciparum parasite carrying Anopheles mosquito, this deadly disease are even made worst for some people with existing health problems.
Malaria is a dangerous and potentially lethal tropical disease and all people entering a high risk area should take the proper precautions to prevent infection.
People at particular risk, and who should take extra precautions to prevent contracting malaria would include the following:
- Children under 5
- Adults over 65
- Pregnant women
- People on long term steroids or those receiving chemotherapy
- Aids patients
- People who have had their spleens removed
- People with porphyry (porphyria), epilepsy and chronically ill patients.
Although the people which fall in the categories listed above are more at risk, please do not be under the impression that healthy, young adults with strong immune systems can withstand this type of infection.
Should any person be infected, they should receive the proper medical attention as soon as possible.
