World Malaria Day

I have come to realize that whenever malaria in mentioned anywhere outside Africa, it’s seen as a very deadly disease and I can’t help but laugh at this notion for if this is really true all Africans would have been long gone and there wouldn’t be any continent like African continent.

4 Essential Tests to Run Before You Say I do.
