This is the first detection of the Polio virus since 2013 in the USA. I thought it was announced in “The Lancet” that polio had been eradicated in 2020. Looks like it is back.
The first case in the USA in nine year was expected, after having a good look at the sewerage and detecting it there in June 2022. The sewerage indicated it was around in the community a month before it emerged. Now they will be urging people to get the Polio vaccine. I have to stop and remember which one. It is a bit complicated.
This is on top of the covid and monkeypox outbreaks. What has come of this world. Maybe they will prepare a special vaccine for the TV sheeple and combine all 3 vaccines into one. I shouldn’t joke. These are scary times with Bill Gates and his mates in the WEF and WHO on the loose.
Actually, Oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV) is no longer licensed or available in the United States. It is still used in some parts of the world. Children receive doses of the vaccine by drops in the mouth.
But be careful as this vaccine has a live polio virus in it itself. Over a long period of time the vaccine-derived virus might change to become more like the wild polio virus.
According to the World Health Organization, routine immunization with OPV must cease after the eradication of poliovirus because of the danger of outbreaks of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus and the risk of VAPP. See footnote.
A major concern about OPV is its ability to revert to a form that can cause paralysis. Outbreaks of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) have been reported in many countries of the world.
A months ago we had a polio outbreak in the UK. Read blog below. There is a good link about Polio in that blog.
Genetic sequencing also tied it to samples of the highly contagious and life-threatening virus in the UK. It is also been found in Jerusalem, Israel.
The CDC in the USA added some ‘comforting’ words.
“However the CDC added there had been no new cases identified, and that it was not yet clear whether the virus was actively spreading in New York or elsewhere in the US.” (sic)
“A major concern about OPV is its ability to revert to a form that can cause paralysis. Outbreaks of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) have been reported in many countries of the world [2, 4].
In 2005, it was reported that children in a small village in the United States had contracted vaccine-derived polio. In Nigeria, >70 cases have been reported. In 2006, ∼1600 cases of vaccine-induced polio occurred in India, according to the Indian Medical Association Sub-Committee on Immunisation’s report on the Polio Eradication Initiative . The point to be noted is that these cases were reported during repeated mass-immunization campaigns in which repeated doses of OPV were administered. In 2008, many cases of polio were reported in all provinces of Pakistan, where OPV is used for repeated mass-immunization campaigns. These vaccine-related cases are big challenge for the scientific community if the polio-eradication goal is to be achieved, and there is a need for prompt action to combat the issue [1–5].” (sic)
