World Polio Day Mission “Zero Polio”

About Polio Day and Why It is celebrated:

About Polio Day and Why It is celebrated World Polio Day was instituted by Rotary club over a decade ago, commemorating, birth of virologist Jonas Salk who developed the vaccine for Polio. It is celebrated to spread awareness & recognize the efforts of organization like WHO & others, working towards eradicating polio. Theme for this year for World Polio Day is “End polio now”. The virus is contagious and spreads mainly through the faecal-oral route or, less frequently, through, a common vehicle (for instance. contaminated water or food) and the virus multiplies in the intestine, from where it can enter the nervous system and cause paralysis.

Symptoms of this Viral:

Symptoms of this Viral The initial symptoms of the virus are fever, headache, vomiting, fatigue, stiffness of the neck and also pain in the limbs. 1 out of 200 infections leads to irreversible paralysis (generally in the legs). Among those paralysed, 5% to 10% also die, if their breathing muscles, cannot function. Polio can definitely be prevented through immunization. The strategy to eradicate this deadly disease is preventing the infection by immunising each and every child until transmission is stopped and we can be assured of a polio-free World.
