The world’s worst-affected countries have been fighting to keep their population numbers up as the virus’ death toll has risen, but the country has also been trying to contain its impact.
Malaria is spread by a close relative of the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, which is transmitted by mosquitoes.
Its most common form, P. falciphila, is transmitted via the blood of an infected person, but there are other forms.
Malaria is a parasite that spreads through the respiratory tract of an animal or an infected human.
The parasites infect humans in the lungs and intestines.
In many ways, it’s like a disease from another planet.
In the distant past, the first person to be infected with malaria, a young woman named Mary Ann Gage, was in London and lived in a convent.
Dr. Arunachalam Ramakrishnan, a researcher at the Institute of Medical Sciences of the University of California, San Francisco, who studies malaria, said that although the disease has killed more than 1.5 million people around the world, the current death toll is lower than in the 1920s, when it was about 70,000 a year.
“The disease has spread more slowly than it did before, but we know that it is still present in India and in most parts of Africa and South Asia,” Ramakrisnan said.
The latest outbreak is not expected to reach 100,000 people.
The last time a large-scale pandemic in India was detected was in the late 1990s.
The country has a population of more than 11.4 billion people and is one of the world’s largest consumers of food and fuel.
India accounts for about 40% of global carbon emissions and its greenhouse gas emissions are the third-highest among the developed world.
India is a major source of malaria drugs, as well as vaccines and treatment.
The World Health Organization estimates that malaria kills more than 100,00 people every year in India.
More from Bloomberg:The disease’s resurgence in India has not been a fluke, said R.A. Ramesh, a professor of infectious diseases at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai.
Malaria remains endemic in India, but India is catching up, he said.
