Polio Back in Kenya: WHO

Polio has resurfaced in Kenya after a gap of 22 years, the World Health Organisation (WHO) reported.//

The infection was found in a three-year-old Somali child at Dadaab refugee camp in northeast Kenya. It is linked to a strain found in Somalia, which had reported outbreak of polio cases in 2005, according to the Cuban news agency Prensa Latina.

WHO spokesperson Fadela Chaib said the successful control of polio worldwide would depend on eradicating it in endemic nations like Nigeria, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan.

WHO has reported 1,403 cases of polio this year around the world, including 1,300 from these four nations.

Poliomyelitis is a viral infection that attacks the nervous system that may lead to temporary or permanent paralysis, or even death in most severe cases.
