...The presence of the poliovirus in the city's wastewater suggests likely local circulation of the virus, the city and New York state health departments said.

State Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said the detection of poliovirus in wastewater samples in New York City is alarming but not surprising.

"The risk to New Yorkers is real but the defense is so simple -- get vaccinated against polio," New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan said in a statement. "With polio circulating in our communities there is simply nothing more essential than vaccinating our children to protect them from this virus, and if you're an unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated adult, please choose now to get the vaccine. Polio is entirely preventable and its reappearance should be a call to action for all of us."...

I heard Hershel Walker has a cure for 'the polio'. Or maybe it was Dr. Ozzie, with his magic vitamins. Nonetheless, mega doses of Hydroxy-C, washed down with 8oz. of Springtime Fresh Clorox will kill that polio and make your whites whiter too...

And that is the issue nowadays.

The fight we present to contagions is more social media based, than medically based.

We are screwed.

PV vaccination, especially IPV, doesn't prevent infection, just systemic spread and paralysis.

Given that screening for polio isn't usually a thing, we might be seeing a normal peak owing to introduction of vaxx derived polio to the area by a traveler but we wouldn't know it.

If we don't see additional cases of paralysis I don't think this is a big deal.

Do not take the polio vaccine.

Protect your precious right to be stupid.

Iron lung technology has come a long way.
