Polio- An Old Disease but Still Relevant

Polio is viral disease that can affect nerves that can lead to partial or full paralysis. Weakness develops in the legs but may develop in the muscles of the head, neck and diaphragm.

Facts about Polio:

  • Polio outbreaks can still occur in the developed world, usually in people who have not been vaccinated. Polio exists only in a few countries in Africa and Asia since mass global vaccination. Immunization is over 90% effective.
  • Polio has been known since prehistory. Egyptian paintings and carvings depict children and people with withered limbs and walking with canes.
  • The World Health Organization estimates that there are 10 to 20 million polio survivors worldwide.
  • The disease was highly publicized during the 1950s epidemic thus leading to extensive media coverage. Researchers working on polio became some of the most famous of the century.
