On March 27, it was announced that all 11 countries that comprise the Southeast region of Asia are officially rid of polio! This achievement means that 80% of the entire world population are now living in areas that are certified to be polio-free.
How does a region achieve this accomplishment? There are many factors, including the capability of laboratories in the region to properly identify, report, and respond to polio cases. It also means that all 11 countries have gone three full years without a single case of indigenous wild polio.
Congratulations SE Asia!

#SentiSabado In 2008, I posted in my old journal a playlist that contains my overplayed songs from 2006 to 2007. http://promdigeekjournal.blogspot.com/2008/02/move-along-nothing-to-see-here.html

I just visited 3 out of 10 of these destinations. I need to rethink travel plans.
