Learn about meningitis
I WAS terribly sad to read your story about the case of baby Mohammad Aldmour, who reportedly died of meningitis after being sent home from hospital in September 2018
(M.E.N. online, January 13).
We have reached out to Mohammed’s family to offer our condolences and support and will continue to follow with interest your reports of his inquest. We also have Community Support Officers in the area, ready to help anyone touched by the disease.
Meningitis is thankfully a rare disease, but when it strikes it can strike fast and it can be fatal. This is why we believe that the first line of defence against meningitis is for everyone to learn the signs of symptoms of the disease.
To help with this we have a range of free awareness materials, including wallet-sized symptoms cards, which are available on our website meningitisnow.org.
We hope that together, we can beat meningitis.
