Is malaria a non-communicable disease?


I know this is a pretty basic question. However, my textbook is classifying it as non-communicable but the exam board mark scheme is referring it to as a communicable disease.
it's definitely a communicable disease as it is transmitted by the mosquito to the human

What's the difference between a mosquito and a mountain climber?

One is a vector, the other is a scalar.

Officially my first spoiler.

Thanks, I'm glad I've been stating it as a communicable disease in my essays. Stupid Textbook!

As RoseRouge has said, malaria is a communicable disease and is transmitted via the female anopheles mosquito.

I think you’ve learned the lesson that textbooks are not always right, in fact, I come across lots of mistakes. It’s about having the confidence to trust your own knowledge and not just believe everything you read.
