Eradicate. The word eradicate means to get destroy completely; put an end to. I feel like eradicating polio isn’t something that will be done anytime soon (at least in my lifetime). Putting an end to this disease would require immense cooperation from EVERY country in the world. My parents are from Nigeria and they tell me how corrupt and poorly funded the government is. The Nigerian government lacks the funds to complete such a task as eradicating a disease. If things were different over there this wouldn’t even be an issue. If their government had a stable health care system they would be able to properly issue vaccinations with no problem, which in turn would help in the fight to eradicate polio.
