In spite of the fact that India is considered as polio-free nation, the infection is still seen in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. As individuals go to these nations and individuals of these nations come to India, odds of the Polio ailment spreading is more. As a precaution, it is recommended to take part in pulse polio drive.
