Wipe out polio, now - China Daily, May 17, 2012

Wild viruses and wildfires have two things in common. If neglected, they can spread out of control. If handled properly, they can be stamped out for good. Today, the flame of polio is near extinction, but sparks in three countries threaten to ignite a global blaze. Now is the moment to act. During the next two weeks, on two continents, two events offer the chance for a breakthrough.
