Polio Immunization Hits 400,000


The Health Ministry reported, Sunday evening, that about 70,000 children were vaccinated against polio during the day.

Since the start of the "Two Drops" campaign, about 400,000 children have been immunized, against the backdrop of traces of the disease showing up in parts of the nation's sewer system and a number of carriers of the crippling virus who are not suffering from it.
