Word this past week was that actor George Clooney had gotten malaria from being in the Sudan recently, but now some insiders are saying that it's much worse.
"He looks like he's lost a lot of weight and acted strange during a recent appearance", stated a source. "Of course, malaria is serious enough if left untreated but I'm not sure that's what he has."
Piers Morgan has announced on Twitter that Clooney does have malaria and says that it can certainly make you lose weight.
However, a doctor in Sudan stated that Clooney could have contacted malaria from the mosquitoes but that the mosquitoes could have also left Clooney with something worse.
Dr. Mijan Sadam stated that the malaria has been treated but that Mr. Clooney's strange behavior should not be attributed to malaria alone.
"Personally, I believe Mr. Clooney could also have West Nile Virus. The symptoms are there but he needs to be checked for it more closely. I only help treat him for malaria. With West Nile Virus, the brain could swell."
Stay tuned for the latest on Clooney's condition.
