Malaria is a serious life-threatening disease, which affects humans' blood. It is transmitted by Anopheles mosquito through its bites. It sets the parasites into the system, where they multiply and infect blood cells.

Nowadays a lot of work is done by the scientists to improve the process of treatment of malaria. Of course, it is hard to diagnose the disease at the early stages, and many people in the world still suffer and die from it. It often happens in the areas lacking medical facilities.

The disease was originally thought to be caused by swamp fumes in Rome. That's why the name for it was derived from Italian, where "malaria" means "bad air".
