Game shows mosquito's-eye view of malaria
- 24 April 2015
A new game about the life cycle of malaria that can be played on Android smartphones has been created by an Oxford University developer, based on malaria research at the University's Nuffield Department of Medicine.
Officially launched on World Malaria Day (25 April) The Life Cycle of Malaria is the first game of its kind which tries to visualise the life cycle of the disease in 3-D. In the process players learn about why mosquito bites itch, why pregnant women are more likely to be bitten, and how the parasite manages to survive.
