The 3 stages of malaria

This is in honor of World Malaria Day (Malaria Consortium) and especially all of you who have have survived malaria. I don’t remember where I got these stages (my mom probably), but from experience, I can attest to their reality.

Stage 1: You are afraid your are going to die.

Stage 2: You hope you die.

Stage 3: You are afraid you are not going to die.

The three real stages of malaria:

The first stage is characterized by uncontrollable shivering for an hour or two. In the next stage, the patient’s temperature rises quickly. It may reach 106°F (41°C) for a period of up to six hours. In the third stage, the patient begins to sweat profusely, and his or her temperature drops rapidly.

I’m glad that this deadly killer is getting attention these days.
