According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, Pakistanis think Polio Drops are also a cure against five other diseases other than Polio.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Of the following diseases, which do you think Polio drops can protect against?” Responding to this, 93% said ‘Polio’, 55% said ‘Tetanus (Meningitis)’, 53% said ‘Measles’, 52% said ‘Cough’, 50% said ‘Chicken Pox’ and 50% said ‘Tuberculosis’. It is interesting to note that 7% of Pakistanis do not think Polio Drops are a cure for even the Polio virus.
