Children can be stealth superspreaders of malaria to mosquitoes

Children infected with malaria can become “superspreaders” and pass the parasite to droves of local mosquitoes, even if the kids never develop symptoms of the disease, a new study suggests. 

Since this disease is passed from humans to mosquitoes and then back again, rather than from person to person, this finding is worrisome.
