HOW TO COMBAT INFANTILE PARALYSIS
Infection is carried by discharges from the mouth, nose and feces. These therefore should be disinfected. Water, If not chlorinated, should be boiled, before drinking. Children should not be permitted to bathe in streams, lakes or swimming pools. Over-crowded places like cinemas and bazaars should be avoided, particularly by children. As much time as possible should be spent in the open air.
