KOLKATA: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) on Sunday held a special polio vaccination camp in Garden Reach-Metiabruz belt where around 10,000 children were administered polio drops.
The action was taken after a polio virus was found in a sewerage sample in Metiabruz.
“We have conducted a special polio drive in Garden Reach-Metiabruz belt following a scare among local residents and a drop in the pulse polio rate in the belt,” said a KMC health department official.
The state health department officials had, however, asserted that the polio virus found from a sewerage sample in Metiabruz is a vaccine derived polio virus (VDPV) and not the wild polio virus that spreads.
Officials said such detection happens occasionally during routine surveillance procedures. Doctors across the city VDPV should not be a major concern.
The state health department in association with agencies like WHO and UNICEF conducts regular surveillance on polio.
Earlier such a positive case was also detected from a sewerage sample in Topisa under KMC’s borough 7, six years ago which was found to be the benign VDPV.
