Is Covid-19 Malaria?

Monday, April 13th, 2020

I’ve been listening to people talk about their symptoms during their covid-19 scare.


They had fever, chills, headache, diarrhea, aches, cough, and just felt horrible. Their sickness was also up and down and some never had symptoms at all but were still positive. People have died from covid-19 due to complications.

When I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Congo I had malaria three times. The first time I had fever, chills, headache, diarrhea, aches, cough and just felt horrible. My sickness was also up and down.

The second and third time I didn’t know I had it at all. I felt a little weird, told a Congolese nurse, and she told me what I had. She said having malaria this way is the most dangerous because you don’t know you have it and can’t treat it. In the Congo people died all of the time due to complications from malaria.


We got malaria from the mosquitoes. If you got bit, which we all did, then malaria was in you. We took medication every Sunday to prevent the disease from developing but nothing was 100% effective. Chloroquine and fansidar was used then as a remedy for healing, like chloroquine is used now as a remedy for healing with covid-19.

To me covid-19 is malaria. But malaria is not airborne. So how is this happening? How are people worldwide contracting malaria aka coronavirus without getting bit by a mosquito? Can someone help me out?
