George Clooney recently came down with malaria.
It's the second bout of the disease for the actor, who will appear on Piers Morgan Tonight Friday and who recently returned from Sudan, where he's been calling for diplomacy against that nation's potential genocide.
Clooney is using the opportunity to point out the significant differences between how fortunate we have it in the United States compared to third world countries struggling for survival. As he recovers, the star said in a statement:
“This illustrates how with proper medication, the most lethal condition in Africa, can be reduced to bad ten days instead of a death sentence."
