Cheryl Cole Sent to Special Hospital for Malaria Treatment
Cheryl Cole has been transferred to a specialist hospital to be treated for malaria.
The “Fight for This Love” singer — who was recently struck down with the tropical disease after apparently being bitten by a mosquito while holidaying in Tanzania with close pal Derek Hough — has reportedly been admitted to the Hospital for Tropical Diseases at University College London so medical experts can deal with the illness before it gets too serious.
A source close to the star told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “She really is very poorly indeed and doctors weren’t taking any chances. Intensive care was their best option when they saw what condition she was in. She is now in the best place for her with the best experts in the field to look after her. Cheryl is in a real battle but she is nothing but a fighter.”
The 27-year-old pop beauty is believed to have spent three days in intensive care at London’s private Cromwell Hospital after being diagnosed with the illness on Sunday.
