    I think global Polio exporter Poliostan deserve a sticky thread

    A health official in Pakistan says four new polio cases have been detected in the country, bringing the number of children affected by the crippling disease this year to 276.Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria are the only three countries in the world where polio remains endemic.

    Two policemen who were guarding a polio vaccination team were gunned down on Monday by militants in Pakistan’s restive northwestern tribal region

    No one has taken responsibility yet but the country faces massive resistance to its anti-polio efforts by Taliban militants, who consider the vaccines a conspiracy to sterile Muslims and regularly attack polio workers and their police escorts to discourage immunisation campaigns.

    This is truly terrible. I hope Pakistan gets its act together at some point.

    Good to see such a noble initiative. :thumb:

    Those guys killed should be included in causalities in WOT.

    There needs to be a App for this as well.

    Failure in stopping this circulation is now complicating the whole world’s program of clearing this virus. Pakistan is accounted as major contributor to confirm polio cases as compared to Nigeria and Afghanistan. Every child must be immunized by vaccine to ensure spread of virus. World health organization is also working with high officials of health ministry to stop this circulation. UNICEF and other organization from all over the world are helping Pakistan to stop this virus because it’s a threat for the whole world.

    Failure in eradication of this virus leads to ban travelers from Pakistan without taking proper vaccines. Vaccination desks are also placed at the airports to provide vaccine at the time of travel. Many countries specially Saudi Arabia and India declared that all visitors from Pakistan must be immunized and bring a letter of vaccination with them.
