Diphtheria

If you are infected with Diphtheria, there is a 5%-10% chance that it will be fatal; based on statistics. These deaths usually occur in the very young and the elderly

Approx. 20% of those surveyed do not have protective levels of antibodies in their system and we still only see 0 – 5 isolated cases per year
