Flesh Eating Parasite Sweeps Through Syria, All Thanks To ISIS

Syria has so much to worry regarding violent civil wars, avoiding bombing campaigns organized by Western powers and dealing with ISIS. Now, the Syrians are worried about the flesh-eating parasites. As the country is ravaged and torn by the civil war, the spread of this parasite is, even more, devastating. 

It's heartbreaking to see people suffer like that. It's high time proper medical facilities are made available in the country. The situation is already terrible and demands serious attention lest people suffer from a painful and slow death.
