Clooney On The Mend After Contracting Malaria In Sudan

LOS ANGELES (AP) — George Clooney has recovered from the malaria he contracted earlier this month during a visit to Sudan.

Publicist Stan Rosenfield says it was the actor’s second bout with the disease.

Clooney is set to discuss the condition and his work in Africa on Piers Morgan’s CNN show Friday.

The actor says his own experience with the disease shows how proper medication can turn “the most lethal condition in Africa” into “a bad 10 days instead of a death sentence.”
