“In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated.”
Editor’s Note: Though the WHO has declared victory over “polio” in India, 490,000 people have suffered from “non-polio” paralysis as a result of the mass vaccination campaign. The epidemic of paralysis resulting from mass vaccination dwarfs the damage caused by “real polio” when it was endemic to India.
