Found a lethargic bee earlier, gave her manuka honey. Did I do the right thing?

She totally perked up after being fed. She seemed really weak and could barely climb on the spoon. She ate a tiny bit at first. Then after a break she ate a lot more (I was actually surprised such a little creature could eat that much). Then she got off the spoon and did a little dance. Then she ate a bit more, kinda flew into my face, and flew off.

I read some stuff about honey having some bee illnesses that can kill a whole hive, so now I'm worried. But I know manuka honey is supposed to be medicinal, so maybe it's different?
