  • Fortunately for Azubaike, he was able to get the proper medical attention. The emergency doctor was able to give him certain antibiotics and vaccinations to ease his spasms but as there isn’t a cure, he just needs to stay alive.
  • Within the next 10 months, new nerve endings would grow and replace the infected ones, allowing Azubaike to stay alive and play with Imamu.
