Malaria Map

Malaria is an interesting disease. It is caused by parasites which are carried by mosquitoes. Each year, approximately 515 million people get the disease and it kills between one and three million of them.

There is no cure but you can be safe if your genes are just right. A genetic blood disease called sickle-cell anaemia can save you. To get sickle-cell anaemia you have to get the disease gene from both your Mum and your Dad. But, and this is amazing, if you only get one copy of the sickle-cell gene from either your Mum or your Dad you become safe from malaria.

Either way, living in Australia I don’t have a huge chance of getting the disease as this new map illustrates:
