Anti-polio drive kicks off across Pakistan
Nine million children under the age of five years will receive anti-polio drops during a week-long drive. Out of the nine million children to be given oral polio drops, approximately 2 million reside in Karachi.
Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Pechuho inaugurated a province-wide polio campaign at the Emergency Operation Centre.
The EOC Sindh spokesperson said that as a result of the pandemic the gap in campaigns from March to July left an immunity gap in children which we have been addressing through back-to-back monthly polio campaigns since August 2020.
Sindh has recorded no new polio cases this year. Last year, 22 children were affected by the virus.
