Mulu arrived at Gambo Hospital emergency department with severe stiffness

Mulu arrived at Gambo Hospital emergency department with severe stiffness.

It was stabilized, resuscitated and initiated intravenous antibiotics after performing lumbar puncture.

Within a few days of treatment, Mulu had not only returned to her normal tone, but was also running around the hospital. The intravenous antibiotic creates a miraculous change in a matter of days; in its absence, she will be dead.
