Diphtheria, a deadly disease is spreading among children in Pakistan. The international media reported that around 39 children have died so far across the nation.
The Pakistan Government is in crisis as they are facing a shortage of medicine. In order to handle the situation, the Government is seeking help from other world nations.
As per the request, the World Health Organisation and UNICEF held an emergency meeting to get the anti-diphtheria serum. Diphtheria is a disease that has been eradicated from many nations through vaccination.
It is said that the lack of the Pentavalent vaccine actually led to the outbreak of the disease.
