Zac Efron is on the road to recovery following a rather worrisome health scare.
The Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile actor was in Papua New Guinea to film his television show Killing Zac Efron, and it appears as though something almost did…
He contracted what is likely a typhoid infection, which is sometimes found in contaminated food or water in the region. The diagnosis, which occurred shortly before the holidays, resulted in Efron being airlifted to the Australian city of Brisbane to receive emergency medical treatment.
According to reports, the 32-year-old actor spent several nights at St. Andrews War Memorial Hospital, but was allowed to fly back to the United States on Christmas Eve to spend the festive season with his family.
Following the story being shared (and many fans expressing concern over his current condition), Efron decided to allay their fears via Instagram.
Sharing a photo of himself surrounded by local kids, the actor wrote, “Very thankful to everyone who has reached out. I did get sick in Papua New Guinea but I bounced back quick and finished an amazing 3 weeks in P.N.G. I’m home for the holidays with my friends and family. Thanks for all the love and concern, see you in 2020!”
We’re happy he’s on the mend!
