Ten times world champion Stefan Everts is in the intensive care department. The former motocross rider rode the 4 hours of Lubumbashi in Congo last month, a local charity race that builds schools. He got malaria during that trip. For the time being, the doctors have difficulties controlling the disease.

At the beginning of this week, 46-year-old Everts was admitted with urgency to the hospital in Hasselt. He had contracted malaria during his trip. The doctors did not have the disease immediately under control and so Everts was transferred to the University Hospital in Leuven. He would be kept in an artificial coma.

The exact severity of his condition is not known. The family asks to leave them in peace so that they can overcome this disease together with Everts.

Since the discontinued use of the insecticide DDT, malaria has re-emerged as a terrible killer in the 3rd world.

Hell, when my youngest son got deployed to Liberia to spread fresh dirt on the ebola treatment center floors they were more concerned about that than ebola.

I read somewhere that the Mosquito is the deadliest animal in the world.

Best wish's on a full and speedy recovery.

I just read today that there is a huge ebola outbreak in Congo, perhaps they have mis-diagnosed his ailment?

Due to Malaria, I believe Mosquitoes kill more people than any other animal.
Of course I would hate to take on a salt water crocodile with a can of fly spry.

Some of my colleagues have contracted Malaria, and now have to be ultra careful as a second dose is much worse.

Another fun fact: The world is apparently getting close to controlling Malaria with vaccine (I think).
Due economic and agricultural issues in Africa, many the 10’s of 1000’s of people saved will starve to death.
Unintended consequences.



Hopeing for the best for Stephan.
Although I have no medical knowledge, I’d expect the best now he’s being looked after in a modern facility.
Certainly my fingers are crossed.

Oh my god , this is terrible news! Keeping my finger's crossed for Stefan and hope he pulls through this ok. Can't help but think about what happened to Tiger Lacey and the Meningitis thing. At least the doctor's there were smart enough to keep Stefan. Stay strong man!

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
