Symptoms of the disease include:
Vomiting

Diarrhea

The victims all died within 48 hours according to Senator Abba Moro who represents the affected district.

And what if it wasn't what you were thinking? What's relieving about this news? Is it still a good thing to have an outbreak of a disease that kills within 48 hours? Do you know if this disease is even worse than the one yoi thought it was?
