“Zero malaria starts with me”

World Malaria Day, annual observance held on April 25 to raise awareness of the global effort to control and ultimately eradicate malaria. Malaria is a life threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected female anopheles mosquitoes. World Malaria Day gives people the chance to promote or learn about the efforts made to prevent and reduce malaria around the world.

With the increase in contamination all around, there are so many diseases occurring that you have probably never heard before. The sewage gives rise to mosquitoes and that in turn, leads to a number of harmful infectious diseases. After approx 10 to 15 days when mosquito bites, you see the symptoms in the form of fever, vomiting, stress, and also severe headaches. There are a lot many precautions that need to be taken care of when you are suffering over malaria.

Do’s during Malaria

  • Use a mosquito net always before you go to bed to stay protected from mosquito bites at night and in the morning.
  • Wear clothes that cover your arms and legs so that you are safe from mosquito bites.
  • You can also use fabric mosquito repellents on your clothes and sprays to avoid mosquitoes from coming near you.
  • Try to have light foods during malaria fever that help you to digest easily.
  • Papaya is very good in case of fevers like malaria and dengue. Try to have papaya in every form and it is best if you can have raw papaya juice.
  • Have plenty of juices like orange juice, lemon juice, etc. to stay hydrated.
  • A malaria patient must stay clean and fresh and maintain proper hygiene.
  • Boil a few neem leaves in water and take a bath with that mixture. This gives you antiseptic and antibacterial protection against many diseases.
  • To boost up your immunity prepare a decoction with 15-20 tulsi leaves, crushed ginger, black pepper and turmeric powder and boil them together for 10 minutes. Drink this every day to heal and protect yourself from within.
  • Close the windows during the evening, because mosquitoes mostly enter your surrounding during the evening.

 Don’ts during Malaria

  • Do not keep water stored in open containers in and around the house. Water gets collected unknowingly in broken pots, coconut shells, tubs, and other containers like items lying around our house. These become breeding grounds of mosquitoes. Keep the house and its surroundings clean.
  • Do not let your children move out to play in open grounds with short sleeves shirts and short pants. Their skin should not be exposed for mosquitoes to bite.
  • Don’t let the symptoms last longer. As soon as you see the symptoms and suffer from high fever, lower conscious level, and dizziness, visit the doctor immediately. Delays can result in further health imbalances and lead to serious problems.
  • Avoid blood transfusion which can be infectious and prone to symptoms to malaria. Make sure, you keep yourself and your close ones away from such infections.

This World Malaria Day, we’re ready to beat malaria in our country. Let’s pledge to fight mosquitoes for eliminating malaria in India.
