We in the news media aren’t always very good at covering issues of global disease like malaria, which kills about 850,000 people every year (about one every 38 seconds). But we’re amazingly proficient at covering celebrities. So when a marquis name is stricken with malaria, this is great news for the media…although, admittedly, not so great news for the celebrity in question. This is where I introduce you to my former travel buddy, who recently contracted malaria while on a trip to Sudan: George Clooney


George was in South Sudan, one of the least developed places on earth, to call attention to the referendum there that may result in the region becoming an independent country — if warfare doesn’t break out first. George has put in place a satellite early warning system that aims to raise the cost of genocide or war crimes, and hopefully prevent them. Somewhere in Sudan, a mosquito carrying the parasite bit him, and he has just recovered. For my part, I suffered malaria in 1997 while reporting in eastern Congo. Note that malaria wasn’t a particular threat to either of us, because when treated quickly it is normally cured easily. But prevention and treatment don’t reach many people in poor countries.

Malaria is still so widespread and lethal partly because it never gets adequate attention — so this seems a chance to try to remedy that. So with your help, we’re going to do both right now. Send in your questions for George and me about malaria, either about his case in particular or about the problem in general — or about why it is that so many still die in places like Sudan of a disease that we know how to eradicate. We’ll go through your questions, and George and I will answer the best and try to shine a light on the problem. And that mosquito that bit George will realize that it took a bite out of the wrong guy.

It's from the NY Times (I've added the lnk Lolo's post, above). Am I the only one bothered by the fact they're both wearing shoes in bed?

Here's my questions for Dr George:
1. If you were a mosquito, who would you bite, and why?
2. Does celebrity malaria have a much shorter recovery period than ordinary Joe malaria?

Yeah, I'm talking this really seriously. Now go away, George Clooney, and make your movie and stop trying to be all things to all people.

Shoes in bed?Maybe in case they had to get up and run for their lives in the middle of the night.Whenever we take cover during tornado warnings,shoes are a must have item.
