Polio No Longer Endmic to India
After last week's post about polio, I thought I should share the news that, after a year without a single case, India is no longer considered to be a polio-endemic country. This means that only Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria still have endemic polio. It will take three full years without any cases before India can be considered "polio-free" by the WHO.
