Public health officials have declared a “national incident” after routine surveillance of wastewater in north and east London found evidence of community transmission of the poliovirus for the first time. The virus was only found in the sewage, and no case has actually been reported in a human being.
What interesting timing though. Because Bill Gates is helping create a vaccine that supposedly prevents polio caused by vaccines. We wrote about that in May:
Most polio is spread by vaccines, not from people getting it naturally anymore and the World Health Organization has admitted that.
In 2021, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only five WPV1 cases were reported worldwide from the two remaining countries with endemic polio: four from Afghanistan and one from Pakistan
So what did they find in the water in London? The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said waste from the Beckton sewage treatment works in Newham tested positive for vaccine-derived poliovirus in February and that further positive samples had been detected since.
