In the four months since the outbreak, authorities in Nigeria have taken steps that include shutting down and blocking traffic between the country's territories.

they said they knew the number of people attending hospitals would be significantly reduced because of the closure measures the government would take in an effort to curb the spread of the disease.

Dr. Adamu: "Every child who does not get vaccinated is at risk of contracting childhood diseases such as malaria, measles and pneumonia. Pregnant women also do not survive."
