    ” Five species of the plasmodium parasite [malaria] can infect humans; the most serious forms of the disease are caused by Plasmodium falciparum. Malaria caused by Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale and Plasmodium malariae causes milder disease in humans that is not generally fatal. A fifth species, Plasmodium knowlesi, is a zoonosis that causes malaria in macaques but can also infect humans[4][5].”

    Yes, just like any other cold or disease, there are several kinds of malaria. Some are more deadly than others, but all cause a lot of pain and discomfort to the infected host, and can kill the host in secondary ways by making the host more susceptible to other diseases.
