(ANSA) - BELGRADE, OCT 7 - Ukraine has confirmed a case of polio, Euronews reported today, quoting Ukraine's health ministry. The authorities in Kiev said it had been found in an 18-month-old toddler, hospitalised with "symptoms of being paralysed". "The parents deliberately refused medical vaccinations because of their religious beliefs," Euronews added, saying that polio has been eradicated in Europe since 2002, but Ukraine confirmed furthers cases in 2015, in two children.
