Despite More Infections, Disease Not Seen as Threat to Bali Travelers.

(7/25/2005) The World Heath Organization has confirmed 33 new case of polio infection in Indonesia, bringing the number of cases detected in the current outbreak to 155.

The crippling and potentially fatal disease which attacks the nervous system, reappeared on April 21, 2005 in West Java after a nearly ten year absence.

In response to the outbreak, authorities have vaccinated nearly 6.5 million children, in West Java where all of the new cases of the disease have appeared.

Another round of free public vaccinations for an additional 24 million Indonesian children is scheduled for August 30 September 27, 2005.
