QUETTA (BNA) In a news conference held Tuesday at the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) in Balochistan's capital, it was revealed that more than 20,000 parents in the province, on average, refuse polio drops for their children below the age of five.
“The number of chronic refusals is more than 4,000,” said Sayed Saifur Rehman, coordinator of EOC.
“Religious leaders and clerics will play their part in persuading parents to administer polio drops to their children,” said Rehman, while talking about preparations to ensure success of the upcoming anti-polio drive in the province.
The news conference was attended by clerics and other religious leaders.
Senior clerics Ataur Rehman and Maulana Anwarul Haq Haqqani have already assured complete support for the upcoming anti-polio drive in September.
