Caption

Mosquito transmitting malaria. Computer artwork of a mosquito with its proboscis inserted into a person's skin to feed on blood. Only the females of the species suck blood. Mosquitoes (family Culicidae) are a vector for several human diseases, such as malaria and yellow fever. Here the protozoan parasite Plasmodium, which causes malaria in humans, is being transferred to the host's bloodstream. It is in its sporozoite stage (blue, centre).
