Polio has been confirmed in one person for the first time in 15 months in Pakistan. Shahzad Baig, coordinator of the Pakistan Polio Eradication Program, tweeted that a 15-year-old boy from North Waziristan had contracted the disease.

An emergency meeting chaired by the Prime Minister will be convened on Saturday. Polio was last confirmed in Pakistan in January 2021. For the next 12 months, there was a celebration of no one being confirmed to have polio. According to the Global Polio Eradication Plan, polio will be the third most prevalent disease in the world by 2022. Each case was confirmed in Malawi and Afghanistan. Pakistan and Afghanistan are two countries that have not been able to eradicate polio despite the declining number of cases in recent years.
