Tomorrow morning we’ll publish the answer to the question in the comment section of this post.
There are four types of human malaria: Plasmodium falciparum; Plasmodium vivax; Plasmodium malariae; Plasmodium ovale.
17 types, but I have no idea.
Four types affect humans
(although most deaths are attributed to only two of them)
4 types. I think that with one of the types it comes back and you never fully get rid of it.
And the answer is …
Four types of malaria infect humans, although only two types cause most deaths. Of those deaths, most occur among young children in Africa.
