THERE is bad news. Polio, which was once thought to have been completely eradicated, is again rearing its ugly head. Endangering the future of our younger generation, it is more threatening than other crisis facing our poor nation. Radical measures are needed for the control of this crippling disease that causes permanent disabilities among the patients. The Senate Standing Committee on Health was shocked to notice the rising cases of polio detected across the country and expressed its concern over the lack of any tangible effort made to eliminate it altogether. The committee called for monitoring and evaluation of polio control. The observation came amid media reports that the vaccine administered to children of up to five years of age was found to be expired. The situation requires the federal and provincial health ministries to deal with the problem on war footing.
