Keeping the detection of the new cases in view, the central government has directed the state to launch special immunisation drive from Oct 10 to 14 in all those districts, which were not covered in June-July.

The World Health Organisation puts the total number of polio cases in India this year at 244 (till August) as against 66 in 2005.
