Another new polio case has been reported in Sindh province from Jacobabad district on Saturday. According to the polio emergency operation center Pakistan, with the new polio case detected in Sindh, the total tally of cases across the country reached to 37 this year. The virus has been confirmed in a three-year-old girl in the Jacobabad region. The first case of this year from the province was exposed on 25th January, when the virus was detected in a four-year-old child in the Sujawal area. The case was reported in a 3.5-year-old child in village Yousuf Jatt of Union Council Kothi. Last month, two polio cases surfaced in Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Both Sindh and KP had reported two more new cases of polio. Moreover, global polio eradication campaigns were also suspended in March for the first time in three decades amid the coronavirus pandemic. Health authorities have expressed hope that with continuous efforts, from December, the spread of the virus will be controlled to a significant degree. Acknowledging that it is their responsibility to deliver vaccines at the citizens’ doorsteps, they have urged the parents be equally vigilant of protecting their children against polio and to get their children vaccinated under the routine immunisation programme as well as during special campaigns over the next few months.
