Zac Efron Contracted a Life-Threatening Infection in Papua New Guinea
Efron was in Papua New Guinea filming his upcoming Quibi documentary series “Killing Zac Efron”, a show where Zac would be spending 21 days off the grid deep into the jungles of a remote, dangerous island, with nothing but basic gear, a guide partner and a will to survive when he contracted a form of typhoid or similar bacterial infection, according to the Sunday Telegraph. He was airlifted to an Australian Hospital to treat the infection.
The bacteria that caused typhoid fever, a life-threatening illness, can be found in contaminated water and food in Papua New Guinea. People who contract it can be treated with antibiotics and vaccines are available.
We wish Zac a very speedy recovery.
