    ORIGINAL POST :


    Polio case reported in New York, the first US case since 2013. Investigators are looking into where the case came from.



    A case of polio has been reported in New York, Rockland County officials said Thursday. The viral disease, which can cause neurological symptoms, paralysis or death, was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 1979.

    Although routine spread has been halted for decades, occasionally travelers with polio have brought infections into the U.S. In 2013, a case occurred in a 7-month-old who had recently moved to the U.S. from India.

    The patient in the new case, a young adult who did not recently travel outside the country, was hospitalized but is no longer, officials confirmed. Officials said the person had presented with paralysis but wouldn’t say if the patient was still dealing with that side effect.

    The person had not been vaccinated against polio, health officials said.

    The person is no longer able to transmit the virus, officials said. But investigators are looking into how the infection occurred and whether other people may have been exposed to the virus.

              The unvaccinated guy was infected with Polio by someone that took the oral Polio "vaccine", genius . So that "vaccinated" person infected someone, not the other way around .

                If he’d received a polio vaccine as a child, he would be fine. Those traditional vaccines actually work, unlike the Covid gene therapy ones.

                  If that other person didn't have the oral "vaccine" he would've never been infected by them
