Can a mosquito give you malaria after having being on an infected person’s feces?
No. Malaria can only be transmitted via blood. As such, transmission via mosquitoes occurs when a mosquito feeds on the blood of an infected person, then bites someone who is not infected, and transfers the malaria parasite in the bite (this cannot happen straight away – the malaria parasite has to undergo some changes in the mosquito first).
