Mode of transmission : Birds found locally in region

Plasmodium falciparum is a protozoan parasite, one of the species of Plasmodium that cause malaria in humans. It is transmitted by the female Anopheles mosquito. Malaria caused by this species (also called malignant[1] or falciparum[2] malaria) is the most dangerous form of malaria,[3] with the highest rates of complications and mortality. As of 2006, there were an estimated 247 million human malarial infections (98% in Africa, 75% being 5 years or younger).[4] It is much more prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa than in other regions of the world; in most African countries, more than 75% of cases were due to P. falciparum, whereas in most other countries with malaria transmission, other, less virulent plasmodial species predominate. Almost all malarial deaths are caused by P. falciparum.[4]

Mode of transmission : Birds found locally in region, the study of transmission of the disease in local birds will unlock the clues you want to find.

One study, published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, Environmental Science & Technology, found that feather meal routinely contained a banned class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. These antibiotics are illegal in poultry production because they can breed antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” that harm humans.
