Malaria continues to be Africa's number 1 killer and one of the main reasons why mortality rates continue to be so high in West Africa. There are extensive efforts by scientists, governments, and activists to eliminate the threat of Malaria, if not prevent the high cases of fatality throughout Africa. But one of the most cost effective and potent ways of fighting Malaria and the mosquitoes that carry the disease continues to be education.
The following funny video is one of several featured on the malariacampaign.ca--- a campaign designed to creatively inform the public on simple facts regarding the disease and ways to prevent its spread. At the end of their latest short cartoon the narrator reminds us to "be careful in the dark. Malaria carrying Mosquitoes only bite at night."
