Chief Secretary Balochistan Mathar Niaz Rana on Monday inaugurated a five-day anti-polio campaign in 16 districts of the province by administering polio drops to a child here at Civil Secretariat.
In the drive, more than 1.6 million children of 16 districts of the province will be administered polio drops to develop immunity from the disease.
Coordinator Emergency Operation Center (EOC) Balochistan Rashid Razzaq and his team briefed chief secretary regarding the campaign. Speaking on the occasion, Rana said polio is a contagious disease that we must all fight together.
He said “It is the national responsibility of all of us to take part in the anti-polio campaign as we cannot afford to be negligent in this regard.”
The concerned administration, anti-polio campaign teams and the public should intensify their efforts to make this campaign a success, he added.—APP
