There are so many diseases out there, one of them is Malaria. It is a life-threatening disease. It’s typically transmitted through the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito. Infected mosquitoes carry the Plasmodium parasite. When this mosquito bites you, the parasite is released into your bloodstream. So if you’re infected with this disease immediately go to a hospital.
Once the parasites are inside your body, they travel to the liver, where they mature. After several days, the mature parasites enter the bloodstream and begin to infect red blood cells. Within 48 to 72 hours, the parasites inside the red blood cells multiply, causing the infected cells to burst open. If you or any of your family member gets infected it’s better to get them to the nearby hospital.
It is important to take caution to prevent Malaria and to do that some tips will come handy. So let’s know about the 5 steps that should be taken to stop this life-threatening disease.
- Try staying inside the bed net at night. So that the vile mosquitoes can’t reach you. Stay safe inside the net, mostly at night times. If you live in a highly mosquito infested area, it’s wise to use bed nets for the daytime too.
- Do not store water in any corner of your house. Because this stored water is one of the sources where mosquitoes can lay eggs. So vacate all the pots and pans that stores excess water. So that the vile bloodsuckers won’t be able to breed.
- Install mosquito nets on the windows as soon as possible. Sometimes bed nets are not enough to prevent mosquitoes, so it is safe to install these nets on every window of your house. Mosquitoes will be really disappointed to see the nets and will not target your house anymore.
- Wear full sleeves. Full sleeves will protect you from those tiny and dangerous blood-suckers. While half sleeves or no sleeves will attract the mosquitoes more, so you must maintain your style within full sleeves. They won’t get access to your skin easily if you wear the same.
- Travelers who are traveling in Malaria prone places should be careful always. Not every country is infested with mosquitoes and this disease, but some are. So while traveling in those countries, use mosquito repellents, wear full sleeve clothes, as much as possible.
Follow these 5 guidelines and you will be able to save yourself from Malaria.
