Since the strategies to eradicate polio were implemented, the incidence of paralytic polio has dropped dramatically. Although in 1994 the American continent was certified as polio-free, any country has a potential risk of the virus importation from one of these endemic areas.
The poliovirus eradication strategies have been successful in Mexico, but it is essential to maintain a quality surveillance and high vaccination coverage.
In the past days, The Beloved Hotel Playa Mujeres participated in the #WorldPolioDay organized by the Rotary Club in Cancun. Our spa therapists provided assistance to the runners who happily assisted to support the cause.
