Posted on 06/22/2022 6:18:39 AM PDT by TigerClaws
POLIO is spreading in the UK for the first time in decades, officials claim.
Health bosses urged Brits to check their children's jabs are up to date after picking up signs of the virus being passed between individuals.
Experts have detected the same bug in London sewage samples since April – a clear signal of a community outbreak.
The last case of polio being contracted in Britain was in 1984 and the country was declared polio-free in 2003.
Before a vaccine was introduced in the 1950s, epidemics would result in thousands of people being paralysed annually and hundreds of deaths.
UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) experts believe a traveller – likely from Pakistan, Afghanistan or Nigeria - shed the virus in their stools after being given the oral polio inoculation.
But the bug has now spread to others after mutating, with the same strain being repeatedly detected in sewage samples since May.
Health bosses have now launched an urgent investigation to pin-point the source and boost vaccination in affected areas.
Despite clear evidence of an outbreak, no cases have yet come forward.
And officials insist the overall risk to the public remains very low. Dr Vanessa Saliba, Consultant Epidemiologist at UKHSA said: “Vaccine-derived poliovirus is rare and the risk to the public overall is extremely low.
And Joe just told us a second pandemic is coming …
Let me guess - big Pharma luckily has an mRNA vaccine that on hand that can deal with polio.
Ramping up production in this emergency situation, they’ll have to dismantle their mRNA COVID production to make for the mRNA Polio production. Might take them as much as a week to do this though...
And why am I not surprised that this version of polio likely came from a country without a healthcare system like the UK or US has. Used to be, immigrants were medically vetted.
Do travellers from Pakistan, Afghanistan or Nigeria have to be inoculated for polio in order to enter the UK?
IF they would be willing to do it.
Guessing it’s more difficult to enter the UK than the US so the UK is able to inoculate a higher percentage of immigrants and travelers.
But our borders .... pffftttt...
Looks like CDC is combing through bottles in the past pandemic cabinet.
heh, yeah, after the virus had “mutated” ... designer viruses for big profits.
Latest in a long line.
The Left has them all lined up. The virus deliberately created and distributed from Wuhan, China worked so well to advance the Left’s Worldwide Totalitarian Government agenda that they can’t wait to do it again.
Didn’t Bill Gates cause a polio outbreak in Africa with a failed vaccine?
Gates vaccine spread polio
Read the article.
UK has illegals coming into their country and now will possibly have a Polio Pandemic.......
Bill Gates agenda
What could go wrong
“More polio cases now caused by vaccine than by wild virus
More polio cases now caused by vaccine than by wild virus as 4 African countries report them”
Now the vax variant is mutating
Vaxx side effects.
My take on this is that unrestricted migration from 3rd world countries brings not only their culture but their diseases.
Western nations are going to pay a price for their desire to have cheap labor.
Polio survives in some backwards moslem countries, where the natives think it’s all a plot.
With hundreds of thousands of invested unvaccinated aliens flooding our border, it’s just a matter of time till this appears here.
War is Hell and this War hasn’t ramped up yet
My thoughts exactly.
cheap labor and expensive votes...
