"The spread of polio around the world has become so serious it is now an international public health emergency, the World Health Organization warned today.
The agency said the problem could grow in the next few months and unravel the nearly three-decade effort to eradicate the crippling disease.
It described current polio outbreaks in Asia, Africa and the Middle East as an 'extraordinary event' that required a coordinated international response. It was the first-ever international alert on polio.
'Until it is eradicated, polio will continue to spread internationally, find and paralyze susceptible kids,' Dr Bruce Aylward, who leads WHO's polio efforts."

I wouldn't put it past the UN or WHO to deliberately create a polio epidemic to allow them to bootstrap it to the global government they want so badly.
I just hope this does not spread and is somehow neutralized. Not all epidemics are created by government.
Why is this happening? Because ASAP was a Jew, so many Muslims reject in that part of the work the vaccine as some Zionist plot. No joke.
It does concern me the people who are against vaccinations of any kind. We’ll see this scourge back in the U. S. with our immigration out of control, and folks who don’t trust the pharmaceutical industry, count on it.
ASAP = Salk. Got iPhoned.
Muslims in that part of the world. Grr...
Re: “Spread of Polio is world health emergency”
Someone tell Bill Gates.
His specialty - giving money to impoverished countries that:
(1) Refuse to embrace a capitalist free enterprise economy.
(2) Refuse to give up corruption.
(3) Refuse to accept enforceable contracts.
(4) Refuse to accept the rule of law.
(5) Refuse to recognize and protect private property.
Hahaha...I wondered at that...couldn’t figure it out when I read your post!
"Reach the age" because there's no more treating those who contract something that makes their life a "life not worth living" in the eyes of the Obamacare Eugenics weenies, it's; too expensive. And shots? Please, shots and immunities are an evil capitalist plot.
Yep. For one thing, some think it is a Jewish plot to sterilize them.
I fully agree; I’m going to probably talk to a few specialists about how to get the vaccine.
Or it might end up with Obama being bodily tossed out of the White House for being ineffective.
I don’t know your age or circumstances. I definitely think it’s worth looking into. Use your own best judgement, and certainly make the most informed decision you can. Never take my or anyone else’s comments as the end all/be all on this.
Best of luck to you.
Thanks; knowing what polio can do and has done to so many in the past (Iron Lung Machines anyone?) I’m going to go for it if I can and I strenuously encourage others to do so. I’m not going to wait until the epidemic actually arrives. The WHO wouldn’t be announcing this if it weren’t serious.
I was inoculated in the 1950s. I have no idea if I am immune today or not. I may be. I should probably check it out myself.
That said the solution for this problem could come from our "friends" the Saudis if they are willing to help. Manufacture polio vaccine in either Mecca or Medina, purely for Islamic consumption, free of infidel contact, and clearly so labeled. Have appropriate religious authorities issue Fatwas and pay to have locals go to the source to be trained. The Saudis may not be a Mecca of high tech manufacturing, but there should be enough Muslim talent available to pull this off and it would be a use of Islamic charity to which all could agree.
Yeah; either way better safe and vaccinated than sorry.
Muslim jihadist kids are being paralyzed. Do I care that can’t they kill us infidels? No I don’t!
Truth be told, I see the polio epidemic infesting savage Muslim regions as a blessing in disguise. And I see no reason to cure them now so they can kill us later.
Part of the problem is that in muslim countries they tell people not to get vaccinated because vaccines are evil things designed to kill them from the Great Satan
In early 1950’s I came down with spinal meningitis. The first thing I was tested for was polo. Once that came back they started testing me for other issues.
I was 6. My divorced mother was terrified at the possibility of her young son spending the rest of his life in an iron lung or as a cripple, like FDR.
When the polo vaccine came out a few years later I was among the first in my school to receive it. Mom said that the two days sweating out the medical test results four years earlier was enough terror for her.
IMHO there is no non-political reason for everyone not to receive the polo vaccine,
You have a good point there; if relations were to somehow become better and we could give them what they need to resist this, I am certain that we could save millions of lives (and develop some kind of good relations.
I agree, as long as you get fully informed and make use your own best judgement.
Thanks for the ping Smokin’ Joe
Yeah of course; I’ll consult a doctor and ask his/her opinion about it. I’m just not interested in an iron lung experience.
Either way, better safe than sorry I say.
You’re Welcome, fatima!
Somehow the vision comes to mind of 1 million Muslims being rolled into Mecca in iron lungs for their Haj.
And that’s okay with me. I just want to make sure folks don’t go off half cocked based on something I might say. When it comes to medicine, folks need to look at every side of the issue.
Completely agree; I just plan on being safe than sorry.
That’s good. Good luck to you.
You know, I’m not a person to give medical advice, and having worked in a pharmacy for many years, I’m sensitive to suggesting courses of action folks have to take to be safe.
I’m willing to say what I might do, but I also want to make sure folks get the straight scoop.
Wasn’t trying to give you a hard time.
That is a more logical reason than what you hear from American parents who refuse to have their kids vaccinated. We’ve got a case of chicken pox in our school. The school nurse tells me that 30% of the kids in the class are not vaccinated. And we can’t notify any of the parents that their kids may have been exposed. WTF?!?
Of course you weren’t! I knew that.
Three regions though is something to pay attention to.
Anything to “Unite” the Masses in whatever endeavor they’ll be attempting in the not so distant future.... “Fear” is always a favorite.....unfortunately too many always die to make it believable.
They have to use something...war doesn’t work anymore. People don’t have the stomach for it and the results to day aren’t to win anyway.
Not surprising they’re not vaccinated, our country no longer “protects” children from ‘anything’ that is harmful to their impressionable minds, bodies or hearts.
It’s only a matter of time before it hits the Americas and comes to the US via immigration.
Then we all suffer because of the complete incompetence of the US government to handle these things and the pathetic inability of a lot of citizens to handle any emergency with any self sufficiency.
I was born in Arkansas in 1948, when Polio was a scourge on humanity. It was a summertime disease, it proliferated in the heat. Surrounded by cousins on all sides, we visited rarely. The disease reached an uncle's house and killed one daughter and affected others less severely.
When the Salk vaccine arrived on scene, we were among the first to receive it. At first it was a series of three shots. There was no choice. If you have ever seen the death and destruction caused by this disease, you would kick down doors to get your children vaccinated.
Later, we were re-vaccinated with the oral vaccine. Don't know if it was necessary, but MY parents were taking no chances. Smart people.
Truth be told, I see the polio epidemic infesting savage Muslim regions as a blessing in disguise.
The WHO will be delighted to take credit for eradicating polio, as will Bill Gates. And wonderful organizations like Rotary international are at the forefront of the effort, and have been for decades since polio was endemic in most of the world.
India just eradicated polio last year.
Islam is the problem (keeping the remaining nations in poverty and oppression, and resisting international eradication efforts.)
There is lots of ignorance on display in this thread.
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
I note that these are all areas of high muslim population, and that devout muslims refuse to use a vaccine developed by a Jew on their children...
“Childhood vaccines eliminated polio from the U.S. in 1979, and are still used today to prevent new infections. But more and more parents are delaying vaccines or skipping them altogether, leaving their children vulnerable to deadly diseases,”
Thanks for the ping!
