    Dangerous animals: Mosquitoes


    Mosquitoes are said to be the world’s most dangerous animals, more dangerous than snakes, sharks or lions, even humans. The reason these tiny killers are so dangerous is not that they are particularly ferocious, but the fact that they can transmit diseases including Zika, Dengue fever, encephalitis, yellow fever and, the deadliest disease of all, malaria.

    About mosquitoes and malaria

    According to MalariaNoMore, the microscopic malaria parasite that is transmitted by mosquitoes is responsible for 214 million cases of illness and 438,000 deaths every year.
    Around 90 per cent of all malaria deaths occur in Africa, where malaria still has a vice-like grip on the population. In 2015 alone, more than 300,000 children under the age of five died from malaria.

    These figures are particularly disturbing when considering the minimal cost of life-saving
    malaria treatments (just £1 for a child) and how easy it is to prevent mosquitoes from transmitting this deadly disease by simply using mosquito nets.

    Mosquitoes on holiday

    Holidaymakers too are at risk of being infected with malaria unless their travel company, hotel or lodge either provide nets to keep mosquitoes at bay or inform travellers that they will need to bring their own nets; again, the expense is minimal.

    A net large enough to protect two people will set you back just £5, which is negligible in comparison to the pain and suffering caused by malaria.

    Infection with malaria and other diseases

    Like slips, trips and falls, infections by mosquito bites are more often than not preventable by simple risk assessments and implementation of suitable measures, like provision of said mosquito nets, to minimise existing risks.

    If you were infected by a mosquito bite or sustained an injury by tripping, slipping or falling while on holiday, you could be entitled to travel accident compensation.
