Over half of the World’s population is affected by this dreadful disease with the vast majority of the afflicted being children and the elderly. Youngsters in the under five age group have the highest mortality rate of any demographic, and over 90% of all victim’s die as a result of being bitten by an infected mosquito.
The virus itself is transmitted, usually, through the bite of the mosquito in the form of a parasite that enters the bloodstream before causing infection and ultimately death.
