Polio strain spreads to China from Pakistan

September 21, 2011 XINGJIANG Polio has spread to China for the first time since 1999 after being imported from Pakistan, the World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed. It said a strain of polio (WPV1) found in China was genetically linked with the type now circulating in Pakistan. At least seven cases have now been confirmed in China’s western Xinjiang province, which borders Pakistan. The WHO warned there was a high risk of the crippling virus spreading further during Muslim pilgrimages to Mecca. Polio (also called poliomyelitis) is highly infectious and affects the nervous system, sometimes resulting in paralysis. It is transmitted through contaminated food, drinking water and feces. On Tuesday, the WHO said the polio cases in Xinjiang had been detected in the past two months. The Chinese authorities are now investigating the cases, and a mass vaccination campaign has been launched in the region. “So far all the right things are being done,” WHO spokesman Oliver Rosenbauer told Reuters news agency. Polio was last brought into China from India in 1999. China’s last indigenous case was in 1994. Pakistan is one of a handful of countries where polio remains endemic. WHO officials had been warning for some time that the virus was spreading within the country to previously uninfected areas. –BBC

  2. Just want to share this information with regards to polio. I am anti vaccination and pro complimantary, alternative, natural treatments. Prevention is better of course.
    POLIO CURE, 1949
    The cure of polio was published by Fred Klenner, M.D. in a peer reviewed medical journal in 1949. (click here for paper). There has never been an article describing the use of massive doses of vitamin C in the doses prescribed by Klenner which has denied this cure. I suppose it was such a part of the medical religion that polio could not be cured that many ignored this cure. But I am also sure that there were some familiar with these treatments that knew that massive doses of ascorbate worked that figured that ignoring this cure would just paralyze a few children but that if this cure was widely know it would be a tremendous loss to the drug industry and most importantly, the loss of their jobs.
