What is malaria?
Malaria is transmitted by mosquitoes carrying the malaria parasite. Malaria symptoms typically appear about 9 to 14 days after the bite. Symptoms are flu-like and include fever, headache, vomiting, diarrhoea etc. In severe cases children can suffer from convulsions, severe anaemia and fall into a coma. Pregnant women with malaria can get complications during delivery. If malaria is diagnosed on time, patients can be treated effectively. For instance with a three-day medicine course (ACT). Left untreated howe02ver, malaria can lead to death.
Save little Manu from the malaria mosquitoes and swat them away from him.
You'll earn a point for every mosquito you swat. However, you'll get a penalty point for every butterfly or bird you've whacked. Should you happen to hit little Manu by mistake, that will cost you 5 penalty points. The more mosquitoes you hit, the faster the mosquitoes will fly. Every 5 penalty points will cost you a life, and you have 5 lives in total. Act fast, because every second counts… (The time you take to play the game will cost you points.)
