1.6 million died of Cancer while 492 died of nCoV



 In the same time 492 persons died of the Wuhan novel coronavirus, an estimated 1.6 million patients died of cancer.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) which has only released estimates for 2018, some 9.6 million persons die each year from cancer. According to some doctors, especially those who have practiced for at least 4 decades, whom FPMag spoke to in person, the consensus is that, “Cancer is a type of degenerative disease that is caused by abnormal cells that continue to grow, multiply, and spread throughout the body.”

Nurse Michele Francis on the front lines of fighting disease in developing nations, says, “Consider more what you can do to fight cancer.”
