Polio has reappeared in Nigeria

This is terrible.
Polio has made a reappearance in Nigeria. Two new cases caused by wild-type virus have been reported in a country which not too long ago celebrated two years without a new case being diagnosed. The cases came from areas that are largely under the control of Boko Haram.
We were so close. Before this, polio was endemic in only Afghanistan and Pakistan. Now Nigeria and its neighbours are gearing up to vaccinate large numbers of people to prevent it from spreading.
