The World Health Organization says at least 22 people in Syria, mostly babies have been infected by the polio disease. The organization confirmed that this would be the first outbreak of the illness in Syria in 14 years. The country\'s health ministry has begun a vaccination drive. There are more than 100-thousand children now at risk of polio in Deir Ezzor province alone, which has been caught in fighting between Syrian government forces and foreign-backed militants. The country has been going through unrest since March 2011, which has cost the lives of over a hundred-thousand people there.
