PESHAWAR - National Emergency Operations Centre for Polio Eradication said that five more polio cases have been detected from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

The Radio Pakistan reported that Prime Minister’s Focal Person on Polio Babar Bin Atta said in a statement that two of these cases have been found in Bannu, two in Torghar and one in North Waziristan.

He said a fake drama is being created against polio vaccine in Peshawar. He advised parents to avoid propaganda against polio vaccine and vaccinate their children to protect them from poliovirus.
