According to a report, saying that a five-year-old child in Herat province has become permanently paralyzed due to family neglect.

Bakhtar News agency, under the control of the Taliban, recently reported that this child from the village of Qabir-mir in the Koh Zor district has contracted paralysis.

According to this report, the child who has become paralyzed is named Sayed Gul, and about five years ago, his father prevented the polio vaccine from being administered to him.

The child’s uncle said, “Due to a lack of proper awareness about polio and the role of this vaccine in children’s lives, this child was not vaccinated.”

Doctors also stated that this child contracted polio in 2020, which has now resulted in permanent paralysis.

Lack of awareness about the importance of the polio vaccine and regional limitations for its administration are among the factors that cause children to contract polio.

Currently, Afghanistan and Pakistan are the only countries where the polio disease still exists.
