Task: Running a Fever is an additional task in Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Warning: This task is broken and has not been fixed by the developers.
This task is broken and is unable to be completed during normal gameplay. The task was intended to work like this:
One of the people in the house for Task: Broken Family is on a bed with a fever. The doctor says that some herbs might help. This conversation should have started the task, but it doesn't.
The herbs could then be collected from the people by completing the task series Emergency S.O.S. (and then Task: Herbal Entrepreneurs). Ryder should have been able to interact with the plants to get a sample, but that is not possible.
Note: This walkthrough portion is for a mod version of the game where the mission can be completed.
Pathfinder Ryder is able to take a sample of an "Unknown Plant". Ryder is given a choice to eat some of the plant or not. Eating the plant causes Ryder to hallucinate for a little bit while SAM speaks to Ryder. Ryder snaps out of the hallucination and SAM lets Ryder know that this plant could be used to help the Nexus Refugees. The task objective is then added to the Journal.
Take The Plant To The Nexus Refugees Edit
Ryder takes the plant to the Refugee and the mission completes.

This bug is well-known and has been reported. This bug is not fixed in the game's final patch 1.10, so it is expected that the task will never be officially fixed.
Note: There is an unofficial mod that fixes the mission:
