I just got back from a vacation in England, including five days in London, in the East End. So I'm getting a kick etc.

I wonder if my vaccinations are up to date...

The U.K. Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said in a press release that finding one to three "vaccine-like" polioviruses in sewage samples is normal, but they have always not been detected again.

The fark?

Polio?  In London?
Whew... I was worried it would be something really bad that might spread to my America.

Best I can do is Jamie Lee Curtis boobies in her 80's but you'll have to wait a few decades.

Those stupid pants were an 80s horror. Not the really tight jeans on women that unfortunately caused the horrible jeans of the 90s. The stupid shiat we all wore.

Sad. Farking Brits be adopting baby alligators and when those get polio, they flush them down the toilet.

It was 75 years ago that research doctors at Johns Hopkins announced to the lay public that they had created a vaccine that successfully blocked poliomyelitis in monkeys.

According to the news report, it was figured that vaccinations for human children were still a good ways in the future.

This link says the detected sample is a variant...

...just what we need, new strains of polio that are vaccine-resistant.

Clearly fear of Polio strikes the victims with an inability to demonstrate basic reading comprehension...especially Subby.

The most common polio vaccine is live attenuated, which some people still shed for a not insignificant time.

Someone sheds vaccine-derived poliovirus briefly, then it's over and not detected again.

Unless chains of transmission are established.

///no need for panic, polio infections are also mild
 
2022-06-22 9:41:58 PM  
And from the wiki: "Factors that increase the risk of polio infection or affect the severity of the disease include immune deficiency..."

It's almost as if ignoring the raging pandemic of a novel virus whose family is known to destroy the immune system, and which also was later confirmed to also destroy the immune system, might have not been the wisest public health policy.
 
2022-06-22 9:57:59 PM  
The release states the viruses can be described as "vaccine-derived," resulting from individuals who were immunized with a live oral polio vaccine and "shed" traces of the vaccine-like virus in their feces. The virus can rarely cause serious illness, including paralysis, in individuals who are not fully vaccinated, but no associated cases of paralysis have been reported.

So some people who were immunized for polio traveled from some place where they regularly need to do that and went to London, where they took a shiat at some point?

That's a solid meh from me, dawg.

I'm not Subby but FTA:
However, this marks the first time a cluster of genetically-linked samples has been identified repeatedly over several months. Scientists say that this suggests there has been some community spread between closely-linked individuals in north and east London.

What did Subby get wrong?

Let's give the anti-vaxxers a round of applause for the wonderful resurrection of a deadly disease that is 100% preventable.
