What illness did Zac Efron contract while filming ‘Killing Zac Efron’?
At the time, he was filming another documentary series in Papua New Guinea, titled Killing Zac Efron.
Luckily, he was given the all-clear and managed to make a full recovery.
But what was the illness? Let’s take a look…
According to reports at the time, Zac Efron became ill with a form of typhoid or similar bacterial infection.
But he never confirmed this himself.
He did, however, confirm he had been hospitalised during his trip to Papua New Guinea in an Instagram post.
He shared a photograph of himself looking fit and healthy, much to the delight of his worried fans.
The post was captioned: "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 PNG.
“I’m home for the holidays with my friends and family. Thanks for all the love and concern – see you in 2020!”
