As reporting in Straits Times, 15 people are infected with Malaria with Sungei Kadut, Mandai and Jurong Island.

Malaria is a parasite transmitted from an infected person to another by female Anopheles mosquitoes. Malaria is like dengue but more severe and can result in dealth if untreated as the parasites burst the blood cells. Treatment include different medicines to treat the blood parasites and those dormant in the liver. Infected person can take 10-15 days to develop symptom while dormancy parasite can be 1 year.
