BiteMeAQuizAboutMalaria Photo Ask most westerners what the most dangerous animal is in Africa, and chances are they'll say "lions", or "crocodiles", or "hippos". In fact, the most dangerous animal in Africa by a considerable margin is the tiny mosquito. You see, mosquitos transmit diseases such as Dengue and West Nile Virus, and the real killer in Africa, MALARIA.

Just under 3 million people die worldwide each year from malaria, most in Africa. That's almost 6 people EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY! In the time it will take you to complete this quiz, 12 to 18 people would have died from malaria.

In Africa it's not simply the deaths that are a problem. Malaria incapacitates the workforce, putting additional strain on the economy. It is estimated that there are 400 million infections each year.

So, here's a quiz that deals with this disease. I hope you enjoy it.
