    BREAKING NEWS: George Clooney has contracted malaria following recent trip to Sudan. Reveals news on @PiersTonight tomorrow 9PM ET ... More Clooney - it's his 2nd bout of malaria. Taking medication but feeling rough.

Clooney was in Sudan last month to work with Google and the United Nations to help the troubled country improve their security.

George's rep tells X17online that the actor is "completely over the malaria he contracted while in the Sudan during the first week in January," adding that his appearance on Piers Morgan was taped on January 13. According to Clooney, "This illustrates how with proper mediation, the most lethal condition in Africa, can be reduced to bad ten days instead of a death sentence."
