Over 10 states in Nigeria have reported new polio cases. 70% of the polio cases in the world are recorded in Nigeria. The surge in polio cases among Nigerians follows last year’s boycott of mass immunisation in predominantly muslim dominated northern Nigeria.
The muslim community in Nigeria argued that the vaccines were impure and would stop Nigerian women from giving birth. They further argued that it was part of the efforts to eliminate islam in Nigeria.
In the past few years, almost the same "logic" has been used in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan.
