About Plasmodium falciparum Tanzania (2000708)
Plasmodium falciparum is a protozoan parasite, one of the species of Plasmodium that cause malaria in humans. It is transmitted by the female Anopheles mosquito. This species causes the disease's most dangerous form, malignant Rates of infection decreased from 2000 to 2015 by 37%, but increased from 2014's 198 million cases. In sub-Saharan Africa, over 75% of cases were due to P. falciparum, whereas in most other malarial countries, other, less virulent plasmodial species predominate. Almost every malarial death is caused by P. falciparum.
Of the six malarial parasites, P. falciparum causes the most-often fatal and medically severe form of disease. Malaria is prevalent in tropical countries with an incidence of 300 million per year and mortality of 1 to 2 million per year. Roughly 50% of all malarial infections are caused by P. falciparum.
