  • Description:
    Globally, 748 WPV cases were reported with onset during 1 January–30 September 2010 compared to 1271 cases for the same period in 2009 (a 41% reduction); 476 (64%) cases were associated with the Tajikistan outbreak (18 occurring outside of Tajikistan). In the endemic countries of Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan, 157 cases were reported in 2010 through 30 September, compared with 973 cases in the same time period in 2009 (an 84% reduction). A total of 69 cases were reported in Angola, Chad and the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2010 through 30 September. As of 2 November, Sudan has not detected WPV in over 15 months.

    Of concern are recent outbreaks in polio-free countries: 1 case in Uganda in late September suggesting undetected circulation there and/or in Kenya in 2010, and 213 suspected cases in Republic of the Congo as of 9 November. This latter outbreak is under investigation and not further discussed in this report.
