Communism can work wonders according to its most fervent supporters. Sure, I mean it can even resurrect Polio!
Polio, a deadly and crippling infectious disease, has returned to Venezuela after almost 30 years.
The illness, caused by the Poliovirus, has been confirmed in a patient in the Venezuelan state of Delta Amacuro, The Telegraph reports
According to the Telegraph, Delta Amacuro is one of several Venezuelan states where cruicial vaccines are increasingly scarce following the collapse of the country’s socialized healthcare system implemented by dictator Hugo Chávez.
