There are a lot of warning signs before a heart attack occurs. According to World Health Organization in data published in 2018, Coronary Heart Disease death in Nigeria amounted to 5.6% of all deaths.

That means for every 100,000 deaths, 197.37 are caused by a heart attack. In the ranking of countries in the world where heart attacks are prevalent, Nigerian is 31st.
