The American Polio Epidemic— a complete overview in minutes
17 June 2012
The Polio Epidemic wreaked havoc on America from 1916 until 1955, when a vaccine finally came out. In an era of advancing technology and increased understandings of health, this epidemic seemed to have come out of nowhere–and still today, no one is certain how it was being spread–striking innocent children, leaving them not dead, but crippled for life, a cruel reminder of the Polio attack. Then as suddenly as it had started, the disease receded for the winter months…and came back when summer rolled over. A survey showed, during the dark years of the epidemic, the only thing feared more than Polio, was a nuclear winter.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Ukrainian children paralyzed by polio
The children, 10 months and 4 years old, live in a region that borders Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland. The chances of the disease spreading in Ukraine are high, warns the WHO, but they say it would be unlikely that the disease would spread to neighbouring countries.
The outbreak could occur, according to the WHO, because there is too little vaccination in Ukraine. In 2014 only half of the children were fully vaccinated against polio and other diseases.
In July it was announced that polio is about to be eradicated worldwide. The virus can cause irreversible paralysis within a few hours. Because especially children are affected, the disease is also known as infantile paralysis. There exists a vaccine against polio, but there is no cure for the disease.
In Ukraine today, there apparently is money to indoctrinate children with neo-nazi ideology … but no money to inoculate them against the crippling disease polio.
Kudos to the doctors and others who scored important anti-polio victories. Everywhere in the world, it seems, except in Ukraine. In many countries in Asia, Africa and South America, there are traditionally many poor people who often cannot afford health care. Yet, it seems that even in these poor countries the situation is better now than in Ukraine. And than in Afghanistan, ‘liberated’ by George W Bush in 2001, also now one of few countries where there still is polio.
