Boy with malaria in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Dumo Jeena, a one-year old boy with malaria, gets cooled down by a nurse wiping a wet cloth over his fevered body. His parents walked five hours to bring him to a hospital in Wau, South Sudan, where his temperature spiked to over 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit).
Shortly after this photo was taken, he lapsed into unconsciousness as the hospital staff tried to cool him down and injected him with an anti-malarial drug. He was also anemic. The treatment succeeded, and by the following day he was awake and alert and his temperature was normal.
