Malaria Rapid Test

Malaria is an infective disease caused by protozoan parasites that are transmitted through the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito; marked by paroxysms of chills and fever. It is widespread in tropical and subtropical regions, including much of Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Americas. Compared to P.vivax, P. falciparum is less widespread, but more likely to result in severe complications and be fatal.
