Guess what animal kills more people than any other

Bill Gates figures that if Sharks get their own week, then the truly scariest animal should, too. So, at his blog, this week is dedicated to a creature that is 70,000 times more deadly to humans than sharks…
(Presumably, the “human” number refers to homicides. Given that well over a million people die each year in traffic accidents, this chart obviously doesn’t include all the ways that people kill each other even directly, let alone indirectly. So it might not have been the best choice to include people in this graphic. Regardless, the point remains — Mosquitos are legitimately described as “the deadliest animal” and significant efforts should be made to fight their effects.)
