First Polio Cases Since 1999 Suspected In Syria

First Polio Cases Since 1999 Suspected In Syria | Humanitarianism: A Journey to the Frontiers of Anarchy | Scoop.it
Initial tests indicate that polio has paralyzed at least two children in eastern Syria.
Eric K. Noji, M.D.'s insight:

If the cases are confirmed, they'd be the first ones in the war-torn nation in more than a decade. The country eliminated polio in 1999.

Syria used to have one of the highest polio vaccination rates in the region. If the virus has returned, it would be a high-profile example of the ramifications of the collapse of Syria's once-vaunted public health system.
