Polio eradication this week:

  • China, India and Australia have joined Saudi Arabia in requiring proof of polio vaccination for visa applications for travellers coming from polio endemic and outbreak countries to mitigate the risk of international spread of polio.


  • In Cameroon, genetic sequencing of the recently-reported cases confirms continued wild poliovirus circulation, gaps in surveillance resulting in undetected transmission and geographic expansion to new areas of the country. See ‘central Africa’ section below for further information.
