Promising compound rapidly eliminates malaria parasite

Malaria kills many people worldwide and a new drug has been discovered to stop the parasite, especially the resistant strains. The drug makes the immune system destroy the malaria-infected red blood cells in the way it destroys worn out cells. It stops the parasite from maintaining balanced sodium.

In my opinion, I feel that doctors must rapidly test this drug for any side effects before approving its use. I believe that if it is successful, it can help to save millions of lives. Nevertheless, the parasite may still develop resistance to the drug.
