WHO WARNS OF POLIO SPREAD RISK

Two vaccine-derived poliovirus cases have been reported in the south-central Bambari health district. WHO warned on 24 May that there is a high risk of transmission of the virus as both cases were among internally displaced people living in a locality with a population of around 8,000. The two cases had no history of polio vaccination. Vaccination coverage in the affected district is 50 per cent. Insecurity is among the major access obstacles.
