Dengue, Typhoid and Malaria
i have been curious about this. what are the difference between dengue, typhoid and malaria since they are both carried by mosquitoes. what are their difference in symptoms, in the attributes of each carrier and in how they shall be dealt with during emergencies.

Typhoid is not transmitted by mosquitoes. It's a bacterial illness acquired from contaminated food and water.

Malaria is a protozoa infection. Here's a link. There is treatment, so get yourself to a physician if you have symptoms.

Your post is tagged 'Saba', according to CDC, there isn't a risk of malaria there.
