Polio has reportedly made a comeback in the crisis-wracked country, Venezuela after almost 30 years, as per the Pan-American Health Organisation.
The organisation said that the child infected with the disease had no history of getting vaccinated for Polio and lives in an impoverished eastern state of Delta Amacuro.
Polio, or infantile paralysis, is an infectious disease caused by one of three strands of the Poliovirus that enters the body through the nose or mouth and later develops in the throat and intestines. The former Venezuelan Minister of Health claims that President Nicolas Maduro's current health officials took over a month to notify PAHO of the polio case, despite an global rule requiring notice within 24 hours.
"The virus especially affects people in conditions of malnutrition and unvaccinated, as this case", Dr. Jose Felix Oletta said, via Medical Xpress. Worldwide regulations provide for a 24-hour period to notify of the detection of such a case.
