Fundamentalists campaigning against polio vaccine in Pakistan attack polio health workers

Polio in Pakistan: A worldwide campaign is being launched to prevent the spread of the polio virus. Polio mainly affects children under the age of five. As a result, children suffer from diseases like paralysis. The only way to prevent polio is through vaccines. But radical organizations and alleged religious leaders in Pakistan are spreading rumors of impotence due to the polio vaccine.

Not only this, a team of health workers is also being attacked in Pakistan and its environs to prevent children from taking polio medicine. On Saturday, more shots were fired by the polio vaccination team in Mir Ali area of ​​North Waziristan district of Pakistan. Several people were injured. Let me tell you that this is the third attack on the polio team in Pakistan.

Earlier on Tuesday, unidentified assailants killed three people, including two policemen, guarding a polio vaccination team in North Waziristan district. Terrorists shot dead a female polio worker in northwest Pakistan in March this year.

Polio cases increased in these areas.

According to a report, Pakistan’s Sindh province and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are the most affected by a dangerous disease like polio. Let me tell you that most of the polio cases have been found in the Pashto speaking community. Let me tell you that Pakistan and Afghanistan are the two countries in the world from where polio cases are still being reported.

In view of the rising number of polio cases in Pakistan, the government has launched a campaign to vaccinate more than 43 million children against it. The government had recently suspended its anti-polio drive in the wake of extremist attacks on polio workers in Pakistan. Dangerous disease like polio is spreading among children in Pakistan and its environs.
