WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Malaria appears to have jumped to humans from gorillas, and the parasite may have spread globally from a single gorilla to a single human, researchers reported on Wednesday.

Slutsker said the parasite may not necessarily have spread to people from apes via a mosquito. It can also be spread by direct blood transfer -- perhaps while a gorilla was being butchered for food. Many experts believe this is how HIV first spread to humans.
