Polio Plus is alive and well in District 5840!   Results so far this year are wonderful in total numbers and an increasing problem in certain areas.   India remains polio free!!!!!!!     Nigeria has 62 new cases so far this year compared to a total of 24 cases all of 2011.  Pakistan had 62 new cases in all of 2011 and only 28 new cases this year.   Afghanistan has 16 new cases so far this year compared to 11 cases all of last year.   The progress to eradicate polio is moving rapidly and very strong in most places.  

111 new cases of polio year to date in 2012 compared to 309 new cases of polio year to date in 2011.   The final inch is closing.  Perhaps it is more like the final quarter inch.


Rotary has a new website 
www.endpolio.org       Please use it.   There will be a link to the new website on the District 5840 web page.

Keep your contributions coming!!!
