Now-a-days, malaria is spreading widely. I would like to know about the preventive measures for malaria?

Dear lybrateuser, - Preventive measures against malaria include : - avoiding breeding & bite of mosquito, avoid stagnation of water in & around house especially in drains, tanks, containers & flower pots - do mosquito proofing by installing metal mesh on windows, apply mosquito repellent cream/ gel on exposed parts of the body, use mosquito nets while sleeping, use mosquito repellent coils & mats in rooms, wear full sleeve shirts & trousers to prevent bite, do fumigation in & around the house.
