Polio-like paralyzing disease hits hundreds — but don’t call it Polio!

Washington Times: The United States was declared “polio-free” in 1979, a feat the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is “thanks to [an] effective vaccine.”

But now it’s back — or is it? Get ready for the doublespeak.

The government says no, the condition that’s been striking people by the hundreds around the United States and inflicting them with polio-like symptoms, to include paralysis, is not, in fact, polio. It’s polio-like. It’s polio-pretty much. But it’s still not polio.

Rather, the government says, it’s acute flaccid myelitis, a disease that hits at the central nervous system of mostly children, rendering their limbs weak, their muscles droopy, their reflexes slow, their balance off, and their ability to move, seriously impacted — which, coincidentally enough, is same-same as polio’s flu-like start, and accompanying pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, difficulty walking and balancing, drooping muscles and even paralysis.

Know what else the government says, though?

In its “Possible Causes of AFM” section, the CDC writes: “Certain viruses that can cause AFM or similar neurological conditions are poliovirus and non-polio enteroviruses, West Nile virus and viruses in the same family as WNV, specifically Japanese encephalitis virus and Saint Louis encephalitis virus, and adenoviruses.”

So it’s not polio — but it can be caused by polio. Parse language much?

“Right now, we know that poliovirus is not the cause of these AFM cases,” said Nancy Messonnier, the director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, in a statement reported by Inverse.com.

She’s referring to the 386 cases of AFM the CDC has confirmed in U.S. patients between August 2014 and September 2018. Sixty-two of them were confirmed in 2018 alone, across 22 states.

“This is actually a pretty dramatic disease,” Messonnier went on. “These kids have a sudden onset of weakness and they are generally seeking medical care and being evaluated by neurologists, infectious disease doctors and their pediatricians, and coming to public health awareness.”

And that public health awareness includes this strict statement: It’s not polio.  Keep Reading

  1. I read we have a case in Jacksonville, FL. All those mommies who chose not to vaccinate will watch their kiddos be first to fall. Diversity kills.

  2. If there’s a CDC publicized disease, you can bet Big Pharm. already had, or should I say “has” the so-called cure (vaccine) waiting in the wings. Ta-da! Another medical miracle . . . or something

  3. its almost like we as a country let in hundreds of thousands from a 3rd world shithole or two and now their secret surprise is all kinds of diseases they brought along on the way to voting Democrat!

  4. Just another gift from the community organizer in chiefs in the name of diversity. Why wound,t they show the location and communities of these clusters? Why won’t they tell us the origin countries? Show us pictures of the carriers.

  5. This is what unchecked, unvetted immigration brings. Disease and pestilence. Remember as a kid, hearing your mom say “good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite” and thinking that bed bugs were something she made up?

  6. Frigging illegals and “refugees” from Africa.
    Close the borders to these people.
    It used to be you had to be quarantined so you could be tested for diseases before you were allowed to go out on your own when entering this country.
    Now? Meh. The Dems like the idea of national panic and scary stuff happening so they can declare an emergency. Yay! More power and more spending!

  7. Being as how they haven’t identified the race of any of these kids or if any of them have been vaccinated for polio pretty much says it’s kids from 3rd world countries.

    When all these idiots claim we’re a country of immigrants and leave out we once kept all immigrants quarantined they prove over and over all of their bullshit is just that a bullshit talking point.

  8. I recommend buying stock in wheelchair manufacturers, like Drive Medical and Invacare.

    This shit ain’t going away any time soon.

    Trust me. Dr. Salk is dead.

  9. There “was” a story several years back that this new strain of polio is brought to you by Central American illegals who are pretty much immune from this virus, and they have transported it into the USA. Courtesy of open borders and NO Walls.
