New Delhi: It turned out to be a false alarm when a case of suspected wild poliovirus was reported from Darbhanga district of Bihar today, the country`s first in 21 months, only to be found negative by evening. Much to the relief of India`s anti-polio drive, which has helped the country remain polio-free for the last 21 months, the WHO after detailed examinations confirmed that it was not a case of polio virus. "The suspected case of polio reported from Darbangha in Bihar has been found negative for wild poliovirus," a release from UNICEF said, adding that "The ERC Mumbai laboratory, where the samples were being investigated, confirmed the case as negative this evening."
