Unknown armed men attacked a polio team in Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa’s Karak and killed a security personnel. Police said the security official was guarding the polio team when attacked by armed men. However, the polio team was unhurt during the attack.

The attack comes on the second day of the anti-polio drive across Pakistan.

A five-day national polio immunisation drive began from Monday to vaccinate over 40 million children under the age of five across the country.

According to the Pakistan Polio Eradication Programme, around 285,000 polio frontline workers will visit parents and caregivers at their doorsteps, adhering to strict coronavirus precautionary measures and protocols while vaccinating children.

It is to mention that last year’s anti-polio campaign suspended due to the attacks on polio teams in various cities of Pakistan, due to which the earmarked children missed the drive.

According to reports, the polio cases also increased in year 2020 as compared to previous couple of years.
