In early March, the Israel Ministry of Health reported on a circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 3 (cVDPV3) case in an unvaccinated child from Jerusalem.
Since then, a number of additional cases have been reported and the health ministry said recently that they are in the throes of an outbreak.
Joining me today to look at the outbreak in Israel is friend of the show, Stephen A. Berger, M.D. Dr. Berger is the co-founder of GIDEON Informatics (Global Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology Network) and he is speaking with me from Israel.
