“Me and my Sagittarius need for attention.” He went on to say: “I am very sick but I’m in good hands and I am told I will have a very speedy recovery. Thankfully we caught it very early.

“I’ll be back to the village for @vasmorganfoundation asap!” As stated by the NHS, malaria is a serious infection spread by mosquitoes. If it’s not diagnosed and treated quickly, it can be fatal.

Malaria can be caused by just one bite and symptoms can include; a high temperature, sweats and chills, muscle pains difficulty breathing as well as tummy pain to name a few. The health service suggests seeking advice from a GP, nurse, pharmacist or travel clinic before you travel to an area where malaria is found.
