George Clooney Contracts Malaria After Sudan Trip
George Clooney is recovering from malaria after contracting it on a recent trip to Sudan.
The 49-year-old actor will be featured on an episode of Piers Morgan Tonight on Friday (January 21).
“It’s his 2nd bout of malaria,” Piers tweeted. “Taking medication but feeling rough.”
A rep for the actor confirmed the news and said that George had fallen ill after a trip in the first week of January.
“This illustrates how with proper mediation, the most lethal condition in Africa, can be reduced to bad ten days instead of a death sentence,” George said in a statement (via THR).
