cheryl cole The 'Fight for this Love' singer has turned yellow from jaundice, is still on oxygen, and was hours from death following her infection with the disease - believed to have been caused by a mosquito bite. "We nearly lost her and the battle is far from over. She is so weak and this horrible illness has taken complete hold of her.
It got so bad she was literally only hours from death's door. Thank goodness she was diagnosed in time. Even now she can't talk. She drifts in and out of consciousness and when she comes round all she can do is sob.
The source added: "Cheryl's not going to be back for a long time. Seeing Cheryl like this is so painful. She could easily have dead. And she's not better, she's not even close. It's still a very serious situation and she's really going to have to battle."She won't be seen in public for at least two months.

Do you think they exagerrated a bit or does it affect them differently since their system is delicate plus malaria kills, when she felt ill she might not get malaria treatment cos they'd never think she caught malaria, so she could suffer bad time.

Malaria is a killer disease but many (especially Africans) aren't aware of the risk associated with the parasite.

malaria is a big time killer disease even for Africans.
the only thing is that once u've had it as a baby and survived it, you develop some immunity to it so that it is not as dangerous when u get it again.

malaria is the #1 killer of infants in Africa by d way.
the children that survive grow up with increased immunity against it. if they leave the environment for a long time however, they may lose the immunity. so returning africans and foreigners better be extra careful about this killer disease.

Malaria is particularly devastating in Africa, where it is a leading killer of children and pregnant women. In fact, there are 10 new cases of malaria every second. Every 30 seconds, a child in Africa dies from a malaria infection. Awareness are being created on understading malaria.

im white and i never showed any symptoms of malaria, went for a routin blood test and found it and was told my load was extremly high and was put on an iv for treatment here in nigeria, the dr shocked i had no symptoms. malaria is used as a managment for chronic lyme (carried by ticks) in canada and parts of the us and mexico and was used to treat syphilis in europe and the us/canada untill penicillin came about. have heard of many people in the service comming home with malaria and not knowing about it till haveing their routine screenings. it sounds like she has had it for a good long while and is only showing late stage symptoms. check with dr without boarders, not an uncommon thing even with thier doctors.
