While it is true that immunization for polio and other viruses in Central and Eastern Europe is too low. It seems the sickness in the Carpathians affecting children is not polio but some thing that is temporary.

Bear in mind the vaccination "mill" is a mega dollar dollar industry and wonder which firms earn monies from this.
