Pakistan records fourth polio case of the year

| @indiablooms | 01 Jun 2024, 06:07 pm

Pakistan on Saturday reported the fourth case of polio of the current year, reflecting the dismal state of health in the cash-strapped country.

A 2-year-old boy from Bharkan union council in Sindh’s Shikarpur district became the latest victim, reported ARY News.

The health department official told the news channel the virus was detected in stool samples collected from a child, adding that he had developed symptoms of paralysis on May 21.

Before this, Pakistan registered three other cases.

They were all reported from Balochistan.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are two nations in the world where polio still remains endemic.
