According to Stats, mosquitoes killed 830,000 people in different parts around the world. The leading cause of death was malaria, more common in Africa that results from one being bitten by a female mosquito known as Anopheles.

Human beings killed 580,000 other human being in 2015. This includes people who died in war-torn countries such as Syria, Somalia, and South Sudan. Most cases from single killings were not captured which simply means the numbers could be higher.
