Vaccine-derived poliovirus outbreak in Burundi and Congo linked to Bill Gates vaccines
03/28/2023 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

Outbreaks of vaccine-derived poliovirus in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Burundi have been linked to vaccines supplied to both nations by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Health officials from both nations detected the cases and immediately informed the World Health Organization and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. (Related: 7 Kids in Africa left PARALYZED by vaccine-derived polio bankrolled by Gates Foundation.)

The WHO said the Burundian government declared the detection of the virus in children a national health emergency. The cases occurred in Burundi's western district of Isale, near the major urban center Bujumbura and only around a dozen miles from the border with the DRC. Samples from environmental surveillance of wastewater confirmed the presence of poliovirus type 2.

In the DRC, at least six children in the eastern provinces of Tanganyika and South Kivu were confirmed to have vaccine-derived type 2 poliovirus.

These are the first internationally-recognized cases of poliovirus linked to the use of a new vaccine, the novel oral poliomyelitis vaccine type 2 (nOPV2), which was developed specifically to reduce the risk of polio in underdeveloped nations.

Unlike wild poliovirus, circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2) causes infections when a weakened strain on the poliovirus present in oral polio vaccinations spreads among the population over an extended length of time. The last time Burundi had a cVDPV2 outbreak was over three decades ago.

Gates Foundation-led NGO claims more vaccines the right response to outbreaks

The non-governmental organization heading efforts to contain the outbreak is the GPEI. The GPEI is a partnership made up of the WHO, several other global health bodies and, most notably, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.


With the help of the WHO and GPEI, Burundi plans to conduct a polio vaccination campaign in the coming weeks for all eligible children up to seven years old. The DRC has scheduled a similar vaccination campaign to be led by the GPEI in April.

"While detection of these outbreaks is a tragedy for the family and communities affected, it is not unexpected with wider use of the vaccine," said the GPEI, which is also supporting local authorities in "neighboring countries."

"Polio is highly infectious, and timely action is critical in protecting children through effective vaccination," claimed WHO Regional Director for Africa Matshidiso Moeti. "We are supporting the national efforts to ramp up polio vaccination to ensure that no child is missed and faces no risk of polio's debilitating impact."

The GPEI said that its mobilization in the region will involve "a thorough risk assessment" and figuring out how "to reduce the risk of further transmission." The NGO will also conduct mass vaccination campaigns in the region.

The GPEI noted that around 600 million doses of the new vaccine have been administered in 28 countries since it became available to the public in March 2021. The NGO continues to claim that the vaccine is safe and effective.

"Throughout the vaccine's extensive field use, the strains in DRC and Burundi are the only two cVDPV2 emergences detected that have been linked with nOPV2," claimed GPEI.

The organization further claimed that were it not for the new Gates Foundation-funded vaccine, there would be "30 to 40" more cVDPV2 emergencies in the region due to the prevalence of oral polio vaccinations (OPV).

"As long as we keep using oral polio vaccine in some countries, OPV-derived viruses will continue to circulate and pose a threat to any unvaccinated people," claimed virologist Vincent Racaniello of Columbia University.

Despite claims of lowering the number of vaccine-derived polio cases, the WHO has recorded more than 400 cases of cVDPV2 due to OPVs in at least 14 countries in 2022.
