First News - - QUICK NEWS -

Wild po­lio has of­fi­cially been wiped out in Africa, af­ter a mas­sive vac­ci­na­tion cam­paign in Nige­ria tar­geted at the coun­try’s most re­mote and dan­ger­ous places. The vi­ral in­fec­tion, which mainly af­fects very young chil­dren, used to be com­mon all around the world, but is now only found in Afghanista­n and Pak­istan.
