George Clooney recovered from malaria contracted in Africa

Posted on

People reports that George Clooney became infected with malaria during a recent trip to Africa. The actor, who traveled to the continent in order to fight genocide in Sudan, has made a full recovery from the illness, which he had caught before in the past. “George is completely over the malaria he contracted while in the Sudan during the first week of January,” his rep told People. “This was his second bout with it. This illustrates how with proper medication, the most lethal condition in Africa can be reduced to a bad ten days instead of a death sentence.” On Jan. 13, Clooney is scheduled to appear on Piers Morgan Tonight, where he will discuss contracting malaria.
