Limpopo Residents warned against malaria

Malaria is a life-threatening disease that’s typically transmitted through the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito.

Malaria is usually found in tropical and subtropical climates where the parasites that cause it live.

 

Your doctor will be able to diagnose malaria by determining if you have an enlarged spleen or liver. If you have symptoms of malaria, your doctor may order additional blood tests to confirm your diagnosis.

Treatment for the disease is typically provided in a hospital.

Speaking at a malaria awareness campaign held at the Donald Fraser Hospital in the Vhembe district last Thursday, the MEC for the Department of Health, Dr Phophi Ramathuba, described the province as a malaria-endemic province.

“More than 600d malaria cases have been reported around the province this year. We are experiencing a huge number of malaria cases when compared to last year, when we probably had the lowest number of cases,” she said.
