Malaria is caused by the parasite plasmodium, which is transmitted by the bite of a mosquito. When this parasite enters the bloodstream, it causes symptoms like nausea and fatigue and in extremely cases, it can lead to death. Malaria can be prevented with antimalarials and other measures to prevent the mosquito bite.
