How do You Get Malaria?

You get malaria from being bitten by a female mosquito that is infected with one of four different parasites. Some of the symptoms of malaria are chills, high fevers, and general flu-like symptoms. One of the parasites causes a malaria infection that can be fatal if not treated promptly. You can find more information here: http://www.cdc.gov/malaria/faq.htm
