New York adult diagnosed with polio, first US case in nearly a decade
Tired of these viruses yet?
Covid 19, lately cases of monkey pox and now according to the New York Department of Health for the first time since 2013 someone gets diagnosed with polio.
This case is a weaker strain of the virus but if it circulates in under-immunized populations in areas with poor sanitary conditions, the virus can acquire mutations and revert to a form that causes paralysis.
According to the US Centers for the Disease control and Prevention about 1 in 4 infected people have flu-like symptoms including sore throat, fever, tiredness, nausea, headache and stomach pain. As many as 1 in 200 will develop more serious symptoms that include tingling and numbness in the legs, an infection of the brain or spinal cord, and paralysis.
The County Health Commissioner said there is no cure for polio. Only Treatment to address symptoms which may include medication to relax muscles and heat and physical therapy to stimulate muscles. Also, paralysis caused by polio is permanent.
First case in almost a decade… crazy.
