National Emergency Operation Centre (NEOC) of Pakistan confirmed one new polio case each in Quetta and Banno provinces. With this, the number of polio cases has touched 47 this year, reports an official.
"The majority of cases, 36, have been reported in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and its tribal districts. In Punjab five and Baluchistan and Sindh three cases each have been reported," the official said.
The official blamed the parents' refusal to get their children immunized against polio for the increase in polio cases.
