what percent of people die each year from Malaria?
There are an estimated 216 million cases of malaria each year around the world, and about 655,000 deaths due to malaria. This means that overall mortality from malaria is actually very low, around 0.3%, of those who get infected. However, the majority of the people who die from malaria each year are children, and in sub-Saharan Africa.
In terms of the proportion of global deaths that are caused by malaria each year, the percentage is also very small—only about 1%. But that is still a lot compared to most other diseases, and malaria is still one of the leading causes of death of children under 5 in many parts of the tropics, and especially in Africa.
