How do you tell that a person has malaria in the Dominican Republic?

One sign if you see a person sitting in a chair, and he or she looks as though he or she is falling out of the chair because of exhaustion.

If you lie down on the bed, and you cannot be bothered to move your arms, like a wet rag lying there, because you are so tired, you may have malaria.

The malaria parasite invades blood cells, kills the cells, and you eventually get anemic from lack of oxygen-carrying blood cells.

Small children often die because the parents do not recognize that the child has malaria. The child dies from malaria and secondary illnesses.

The best treatment for malaria is a three-day regime of intravenous liquid put into your veins to bypass stomach acids.
