Malaria, the 'King of Diseases', is re-emerging as World's Number One killer infection. Once nearly-eradicated, the disease now affects more than 300 million and kills more than 3 million people every year. Malaria in humans is caused by protozoan species that are transmitted by the bite of an infected female Anopheles mosquito. The disease is characterized by fever and flu-like symptoms, including chills, headache, muscle aches, and fatigue. These symptoms may occur at intervals. Malaria may be associated with anemia and jaundice, and severe infections may cause kidney failure, coma, and death.
