The outbreak of polio in Tajikistan on the Uzbekistan and Afganistan borders has led the World Health Organization and the Health Ministry to warn all would-be travelers to the area to be immunized against the virus.

In recent weeks, 120 cases of polio have been reported in the former Soviet Central Asian republic.
