The World Health Organization has said that at least 61 children were killed in Cambodia due to disease for the past three months. WHO has also said that 62 children were admitted to hospitals from April this year and they doctors were unable to diagnose their syndrome. Sixty one children eventually lost their lives too. In fact, there are no signs whether the undiagnosed syndrome was spreading from person to person.
All the dead children complained for fever and then developed neurological problems followed by respiratory complications that led to their death. Notably, all of them were below 10 years. Meanwhile, neighbouring countries were alerted over this syndrome.
