Dhadingbesi branch distributed mosquito net at Kumalbasti of Pipaltar, Maidi, Dhading to 130 household

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease affecting humans and other animals caused by parasitic protozoans (a group of single-celled microorganisms) belonging to the Plasmodium type. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, feeling tired, vomiting, and headaches. In severe cases it can cause yellow skin, seizures, coma, or death. Symptoms usually begin ten to fifteen days after being bitten. If not properly treated, people may have recurrences of the disease months later. In those who have recently survived an infection, reinfection usually causes milder symptoms. This partial resistance disappears over months to years if the person has no continuing exposure to malaria.

 

Though the major cities of Nepal like Kathmandu and Pokhara are malaria free, the village areas of Nepal where the area is still undeveloped there are chances of malaria and other mosquito borne diseases to prevent these diseases the there are many precautions that can be taken. One of the easiest and affective way of prevention from the mosquitoes are mosquito repellents and mosquito nets. The Sanima Bank Dhadingbesi Branch had distributed mosquito nets to the local people living in Kumalbasti of Pipaltar, Maidi, and Dhading. The mosquito nets were distributed to 130 households for the prevention of the people from mosquito borne diseases.
