It is very important to notice the symptoms clearly. The other symptom is sleeplessness and respiratory illness. This is something you should really notice as most of the times it goes unnoticed and malaria spreads rapidly. Some of the best methods of prevention of malaria are: 1) have mosquito nets for all the windows and bedding at all times, if possible, 2) clear off stagnant water in and around your house because stagnant water is the breading place for mosquitos, 3) you also try the mosquito replants on the clothes as they won’t come in direct contact with the skin.

According to a maternity hospital in Chandigarh, the next most common illness is dengue. This is again spread by mosquitos.
