About ten children between the ages of 3 to 13 years have reportedly lost their lives mysteriously.
It was gathered that the young children lost their lives to a yet-to-be identified suspected respiratory track infection.
It was gathered that the respiratory infection broke out in Kafanchan, Jama’a Local government area of Kaduna.
The unfortunate death was confirmed by the Chief Medical Director of Sir Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa Memorial Hospital, Doctor Isaac Nathaniel.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has disclosed that Anthrax disease may have spread to the south and other parts of the north.
This is barely 24 hours after the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Agriculture, confirmed the first case of the disease in Niger State.
The first case of the disease outbreak was confirmed on a multi-specie animal farm comprising cattle, sheep, and goats in Suleja.
