The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Saturday said the alleged fake immunisation conducted by Dr Shakil Afridi had nothing to do with polio campaigns as DNA cannot be collected orally.

WHO rejects polio rumours

ISLAMABAD, Feb 25: 
Pakistan’s polio campaign came under immense pressure when people in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other parts of the country refused to administer drops to their children after reports that Dr Afridi had managed a fake polio campaign for taking DNA of Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad.
In an interview with Dawn, WHO’s special envoy on global polio eradication and primary healthcare, Dr Hussain A. Gezari said:
“This person (Dr Afridi) was not supported either by the government of Pakistan or any international donor agency for any immunisation campaign, and secondly, we don’t collect blood samples during vaccination campaigns.”
Dr Afridi is currently under the custody of intelligence agencies and has been booked by the government on the charge of treason.
Setting aside rumours linked with efficacy of the vaccination in some section of the media, Dr Gezari said: “The vaccine being
used to eradicate polio globally is verified, cleared and checked for quality by WHO and has nothing to do with any type of transmission of disease to any child. No one has ever died or can die of the vaccine. The polio vaccine is sent to any country only for a short period of time and there is no chance for it to expire.
“This is nonsense if someone says that the vaccine will cause death and such people should not be taken seriously,” he insisted.
