Since December 2, 2011, 742 individuals have been deployed on 1,748 assignments to work with the STOP program in 59 countries, including Chad, Haiti, and Kenya.

In 2015, 74 cases of wild poliovirus were reported: 54 from Pakistan and 20 from Afghanistan. Frieden and senior CDC immunization staff were present when India, along with the other 10 countries of the South East Asia Region, was certified polio-free.

The country was once considered the most complex challenge to achieving global polio eradication.

After investigating the scene of the crash, groups enter the Van Chappel residence, where they encounter a satanic dining room, a grimy bathroom and a chilling courtyard.

Set design is elaborate and creepy down the the finest detail.

No one waited too long to take their turn in the manor, and the horror shorts made the waiting time fun.

Once inside, groups of seven or eight follow the kooky gumshoe through scene after scene connected by tight, dimly lit hallways where freaks and creatures could be lurking.The atmosphere is entertaining to the eyes and raises the heart rate a bit.The believable aesthetics, however, are far from the only thing that makes this attraction frighteningly entertaining.Customers line up and are greeted by a horror character, which, on opening night, was an extremely stoic and perfectly silent Michael Myers. Friendly, if spooky, volunteers lead thrill seekers into a waiting area/movie theater where they watch simple but spine-tingling horror shorts while they await their fate.He elicited some early screams from the youngest children in the crowd. Once the show starts, at 7 p.m., Gravestone does a great job of efficiently moving groups through the attraction.It is therefore imperative that we make this final push toward eradication one of our highest priorities. Frieden has stated, “If we fail to get over the finish line, we will need to continue expensive control measures for the indefinite future…, More importantly, without eradication, a resurgence of polio could paralyze more than 200,000 children worldwide every year within a decade.” Now is the time, we must not fail.
