Polio is back, despite being nearly eradicated since a safe effective vaccine was developed in the 1950s and been given to school children ever since.
New York state health officials have found indications of additional cases of polio virus in wastewater samples from two different counties, leading them to warn that hundreds of people may be infected with the potentially serious virus.
Just two weeks ago, the New York Health Department reported the nation’s Officials said that case occurred in a previously healthy young adult who was unvaccinated and developed paralysis in their legs. Since then, three positive wastewater samples from Rockland County and four from neighboring Orange County were discovered and genetically linked to the first case, the health department said in a press release on Thursday, suggesting that the polio virus is being spread within local communities. The newest samples were taken from two locations in Orange County in June and July and one location in Rockland County in July.in almost a decade, in Rockland County, north of New York City.
“Based on earlier polio outbreaks, New Yorkers should know that for every one case of paralytic polio observed, there may be hundreds of other people infected,” State Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said. “Coupled with the latest wastewater findings, the Department is treating the single case of polio as just the tip of the iceberg of much greater potential spread. As we learn more, what we do know is clear: the danger of polio is present in New York today.”
I don’t object to vaccines, I objected to the Covid vaccine. Most vaccines have a long track record of safe use, and are actually effective. The Covid vaccine was rushed through development, with minimal clinical trials. The data from those trials is still being withheld from publication.
I think it’s reasonable to question the safety of the Covid “vaccine” — the effectiveness is certainly not in doubt. It’s clearly ineffective — it does not prevent the spread of the illness or the infection. Perhaps “Preventative therapeutic” is a better description for it instead of “vaccine.”Published in
