Wow.  From a thousand cases a DAY when Rotary started the campaign to eradicate polio back in 1985 to only 134 cases so far in ALL of 2012!!

Yay Rotary and partners!  We’re THIS CLOSE to ending polio!

  1. Sad to check the stats today, and see that there were 41 recent cases in Somalia. For the last 3 years immunization teams have been trouble getting in there, and here is the result. This time in 2012 there’d been 88 cases, and in 2013 there have been 95. Just think- without those 41 it’d have been 54. >sigh<
