Comments: On 13 February 2018, the DRC Minister of Public Health declared that 21 cases of cVDPV2 had been registered in provinces where surveillance and coverage indicators have always remained low as compared to national averages. The affected provinces include Haut-Lomami, Maniema and Tanganyika provinces. An analysis derived from observations has shown that cVDPV2 mostly exists in communities where children are not vaccinated with OPV, or vaccination coverage is very poor and the cVDPV2 epidemic is affecting provinces where the populations have proven to be reluctant to let their children receive OPV on the ground of religious beliefs.
