"It was the last time he was admitted to the doctor and he was admitted to the hospital."

Understanding Malaria

Malaria is an acute febrile infectious disease transmitted by the female bite of the Anopheles mosquito, infected by Plasmodium.

Transmission occurs after the female of the Anopheles mosquito, infected by protozoa of the genus Plasmodium. In Brazil, three species are associated with malaria in humans: P. vivax, P. falciparum and P. malariae.

The protozoan is transmitted to man by blood, usually through the bite of the female of the Anopheles mosquito, infected by Plasmodium or, more rarely, by another type of medium that puts the blood of an infected person in contact with that of a healthy person, such as the sharing of syringes (drug users), blood transfusion or even mother to fetus in pregnancy

The most common symptoms are:

  • chills
  • high fever (at the beginning continuous and then every three days)
  • headaches and muscular pains
  • tachycardia
  • increased spleen, and sometimes delusions.

In the case of P. falciparum infection, there is also a 10-fold chance of developing what is called cerebral malaria, responsible for about 80% of the lethal cases of the disease. In addition to the current symptoms, there is slight stiffness in the nape of the neck, sensory disturbances, disorientation, drowsiness or excitement, seizures, vomiting and headaches, which can lead to coma.

There is no date yet for the singer to be discharged. Due to the hospitalization, the singer had to cancel the schedule of concerts next weekend, which would be in Minas Gerais.
