Nigeria records fresh cases of Polio




Nigeria’s hope of being certified Polio-free by the World Health Organisation (WHO), next year, might have been dashed, as two new cases have been reported.

Health authorities in Abuja have, however, remained silent, with key officials refusing to be quoted.

The two cases of Wild Polio Virus (WPV) were discovered in Gwarzo and Jere Local Government Areas of Borno State, yesterday.

A top health official told The Guardian the country has decided to term it a ‘suspicion’, while it seeks the best approach to break the news to the public.

It was learnt WHO could announce the development at a press conference in Geneva tomorrow.

Last month, July 24, Nigeria celebrated two years without any new case of Polio.
