Everts no longer critical The condition of Stefan Everts, who was struck by malaria, is getting better. His condition is no longer critical. That is why it's no longer necessary to sedate the ten times world champion motocross. Everts is still staying at the intensive care unit of the University Hospital in Leuven, where he is closely monitored and where only family members are allowed. It's still to early to talk about the consequences of the malaria or about the duration of his recovery. Everts contracted the disease a month ago in Congo, where he participated in a charity race. At the beginning of December malaria broke out and he was immediately admitted to the hospital in Hasselt, after which he was transferred to the University Hospital in Leuven. The Everts family wants to thank everyone for all the support and encouraging words. In the case of new developments, communication will again take place via a press release.
