In 2019, Stephenie Rodriguez visited Lagos on an invitation to speak at a business gathering for travel executives. After speaking with the Sydney morning Herald, she was asked to take a picture next to a pool of stagnant water and during the shoot she was bitten by a mosquito thrice on her left ankle.

After the program in Nigeria, she left for India and a little while later she was admitted in the hospital as she was not able to eat or drink. It was there a specialist told her that she had celebral malaria.

During the course of her treatment she was given Artesunate, this drug caused her to have organ failure and to go into septic shock and the doctors gave her a two percent chance of survival.
