Antibiotics only used to treat bacterial infections: hiv: resistance in a virus (viral pathogen) (1) malaria [parasite and vector. Disease caused by parasite of genus plasmodium. Symptoms: fever, chills, anemia (due to loss of red blood cells) Cartoon: red blood cell bursting out parasites. Plasmodium is mosquito transmitted: parasites going to infect new red blood cells in which they replicate and eventually burst that blood cell (then get anemia) Lots of cases of malaria: half a million deaths a year: mostly in sub-saharan africa, mostly kids dying.
