What on earth? ‘Africa is on track to be declared polio-free’

Something insane has just come to our attention. A very intriguing story submitted to reddit in the last day by the user dolphins3 titled Africa is on track to be declared polio-free is gaining some traction, having got 6 comments already at the time of writing.
