According to the Weekly Polio Update released yesterday, ahead of the World Immunisation Week, April 24 to 30, by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), no new wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) cases were reported in the past week.
The report reads: “Nigeria’s total WPV1 case count for 2014 remains six. No cases have been reported in 2015. The most recent case had onset of paralysis on July 24 in Sumaila Local Government Area (LGA), Kano State.


“No new type 2 circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV2) cases were reported this week. The most recent case had onset of paralysis on November 16 in Barde Local Council of Yobe State. The total number of cVDPV2 cases for 2014 in Nigeria remains 30. No cases have been reported in 2015.”
The GPEI report, which was corroborated by the Executive Director of National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), said the National Immunisation Days are scheduled from April 25 to 28 using trivalent oral polio vaccine (OPV) in most of the country, bivalent (OPV2) in the south-west and Injectable Polio Vaccine (IPV) in some areas of the North.
