Malaria is a well understood disease. We know that it is spread by mosquitos.
Mosquitos are well understood insects. We know they spread by breeding in stagnant pools of water.
So, why do so many people keep falling victim to it every year?
- We don't often clear the puddles in our compounds.
- We don't always use insecticides to clear our rooms of mosquitos.
- We don't use mosquito nets and insect repellants as diligently as we should.
- Some people don't believe in taking drugs until the fever is fully blown.
Let's just be more vigilant and malaria will be under control!
