Polio Outbreak In The Philippines

Once thought to have been completely stamped out, polio has made a comeback in the Philippines.

Health officials have confirmed the first case of polio in the country in 19 years, and are awaiting confirmation on another case.

The World Health Organization says it’s “very concerned” about the poliovirus re-emerging, while the local government is preparing a mass immunization campaign for children under 5.
