Many hundreds of people, most of them children, died in Nigeria due to diphtheria in the past year. Diphtheria is highly contagious and affects the nose and throat. It can also cause ulcers on the skin. Though it is preventable through vaccines, many of the children have died in Nigeria because they were not vaccinated. Coughs spread and sneeze or through close contact with someone infected, and in severe cases, can be fatal. The World Health Organization said that the fatality and infection rate may be higher due to low testing and the failure of some patients to report their symptoms. Pray that the children will get vaccinated and immunized to control the ongoing outbreak. Pray that the Government will prevent the deadly disease from spreading and end the needless losses and agonies of Nigerians (The Bible Psalm 6:2).
