Today is World Malaria Day!!! World Malaria Day is commemorated every year on 25th April to recognize global efforts to prevent and control malaria.
Malaria is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Nigeria and Africa at large. Approximately 90% of all malaria deaths in the world occur in Africa.
Malaria symptoms include general weakness, fever, body ache, dizziness, chills, nausea and vomiting.
Malaria can be prevented by:
*Sleeping under insecticide-treated mosquito nets.
*Spraying insecticides indoors or apply repellents
*Clearing cloth clusters or piled laundry, as they present a hiding place for mosquitoes.
*Getting rid of stagnant water around your environment.
*Ensuring your environment is always clean.
Let’s join the fight against Malaria in Nigeria and beyond by creating awareness and enlightening others on Malaria prevention strategies, test and treatment
