FREE/END POLIO PAKISTAN – OUR GOAL TO END POLIO FROM ROOT


What is polio?

Polio (also known as poliomyelitis) is extremely spreadable disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. More likely Children birth to 5 years old are contracted via this virus more than any other group.

Though, acknowledgements to the global polio eradication resourcefulness in 1988, the following regions are now certified polio-free:

  • Americas
  • Europe
  • Western Pacific
  • Southeast Asia

Vaccination was developed in 1953 and ready to use in 1957. Since that in United States polio cases have dropped.

Polio is still persistent in Nigeria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. In terms of health and economy, Eradicating polio will benefit the world. The eradication of Polio can save Billion dollars in twenty years.

From the history of polio to now

Cases of polio found in the United States in the 1952 with 57,623 reported cases. The United States has been polio-free since 1979, Since the Polio Vaccination Assistance Act.

Polio is a vastly spreadable virus that can result in spinal cord and brainstem paralysis. It utmost generally affects children under 5 years old.

Although many counties are certified polio-free, but Polio Virus is Still active in many Countries, till these countries immunization Camping are not started. If any confirmed case is found in any country is on risk, according to WHO.

Immunization campaign for early October and November of 2016 are started in Afghanistan. National and Sub-national Immunization Days are planned and ongoing for countries in West Africa. You can stay up to date with case breakdowns on The Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s website .

SYMPTOMS:

What are the symptoms of polio?

It’s assessed that 95 to 99 % of people who contract polio-virus are asymptomatic. This is known as sub-clinical polio. Even without symptoms, people infected with polio-virus can still spread the virus and cause infection in others.

Non-paralytic polio

Signs and symptoms of non-paralytic polio can precede from one to 10 days. These signs and symptoms can be flu-like and can include:

  • fever
  • sore throat
  • headache
  • vomiting
  • fatigue
  • meningitis

Non-paralytic polio is also known as abortive polio.

Paralytic polio

Around 1 percent of polio cases can progress into paralytic polio. Paralytic polio indicates to paralysis in the spinal cord (spinal polio), brain-stem (bulbar polio), or both (bulb spinal polio).

Initial symptoms are similar to non-paralytic polio. But after a week, more severe symptoms will seem. These symptoms include:

  • loss of reflexes
  • severe spasms and muscle pain
  • loose and floppy limbs, sometimes on just one side of the body
  • sudden paralysis, temporary or permanent
  • deformed limbs, especially the hips, ankles, and feet

 

It’s occasional for full paralysis to grow. Less than 1 percent of all polio cases will effect in permanent paralysis. In 5–10 percent of the polio paralysis cases, the virus will attack the muscles that help you breathe and cause death.

Post-polio syndrome

Even after you’ve recovered, it is possible for polio to come back. This can occur after 15 to 40 years. Common symptoms of post-polio syndrome (PPS) are:

  • continuing muscle and joint weakness
  • muscle pain that gets worse
  • becoming easily exhausted or fatigued
  • muscle wasting, also called muscle atrophy
  • trouble breathing and swallowing
  • sleep apnea, or sleep-related breathing problems
  • low tolerance of cold temperatures
  • new onset of weakness in previously uninvolved muscles
  • depression
  • trouble with concentration and memory

Talk to your doctor if you’ve had polio and are starting to see these symptoms. It’s estimated that 25 to 50 percent of people who survived polio will get PPS. PPS can’t be caught by others having this disorder. Treatment involves management strategies to improve your quality of life and reduce pain or fatigue.

CAUSES:

How does the polio-virus infect someone?

As a highly contagious virus, polio transmits through contact with infected feces. Objects like toys that have come near infected feces can also transmit the virus. Sometimes it can transmit through a sneeze or a cough, as the virus lives in the throat and intestines. This is less common.

People living in areas with limited access to running water or flush toilets often contract polio from drinking water contaminated by infected human waste. According to the Mayo Clinic, the virus is so contagious that anyone living with someone who has the virus can catch it too.

Pregnant women, people with weakened immune systems — such as those who are HIV-positive — and young children are the most susceptible to the polio-virus.

If you have not been vaccinated, you can increase your risk of contracting polio when you:

  • travel to an area that has had a recent polio outbreak
  • take care of or live with someone infected with polio
  • handle a laboratory specimen of the virus
  • have your tonsils removed
  • have extreme stress or strenuous activity after exposure to the virus

DIAGNOSIS

How do doctors diagnose polio?

Your doctor will diagnose polio by looking at your symptoms. They’ll perform a physical examination and look for impaired reflexes, back and neck stiffness, or difficulty lifting your head while lying flat.

Labs will also test a sample of your throat, stool, or cerebrospinal fluid for the poliovirus.

TREATMENT:

How do doctors treat polio?

Doctors can only treat the symptoms while the infection runs its course. But since there’s no cure, the best way to treat polio is to prevent it with vaccinations.

The most common supportive treatments include:

  • bed rest
  • painkillers
  • antispasmodic drugs to relax muscles
  • antibiotics for urinary tract infections
  • portable ventilators to help with breathing
  • physical therapy or corrective braces to help with walking
  • heating pads or warm towels to ease muscle aches and spasms
  • physical therapy to treat pain in the affected muscles
  • physical therapy to address breathing and pulmonary problems
  • pulmonary rehabilitation to increase lung endurance

In advanced cases of leg weakness, you may need a wheelchair or other mobility device.

PREVENTION:

How to prevent polio

The best way to prevent polio is to get the vaccination. Children should get polio shots according to the vaccination schedule presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

CDC vaccination schedule

Age  
2 months One dose
4 months One dose
6 to 18 months One dose
4 to 6 years Booster dose

Polio vaccine prices for children

On rare occasions these shots can cause mild or severe allergic reactions, such as:

  • breathing problems
  • high fever
  • dizziness
  • hives
  • swelling of throat
  • rapid heart rate

Adults in the United States aren’t at high risk for contracting polio. The greatest risk is when traveling to an area where polio is still common. Make sure to get a series of shots before you travel.

Polio vaccinations around the world

Overall, cases of polio have dropped by 99 percent. Only 74 cases were reported in 2015.

Polio still persists in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria.

Vegetable Prices Have Increased by 400% During Past Few Months

Vegetables

The prices of commodities have increased by up to 400% due to their unequal demand-supply over the past few months. The continuous negligence of the government towards this problem has forced the citizens to buy the vegetables on high rates.

Vegetables have seen a huge price bump during the last 2 months and have become unaffordable for many since then. Tomatoes and onions, that were being sold at Rs. 30 and Rs. 40 before, have hit Rs. 160 and Rs. 100 per kilogram respectively.

As stated in the price-list issued by Karachi commissioner’s controller general office, the grade I and grade II tomatoes are to be sold for Rs. 128 and Rs. 108 per kg respectively, whereas the onions are to be sold for Rs. 64 to Rs. 86, depending on their sizes.

It was informed in the Sindh Assembly session that, “Monsoon rains damaged the local crop of tomatoes and onions.” The prices are expected to be decreased once the commodities will be imported from upper Sindh, said an answer submitted to the Assembly.

Mr. Asif Ahmed, the vice chairperson of Karachi division market committee, said that the condition is not expected to improve until January – when the crops will be harvested in upper Sindh and Balochistan.

“The farmers have cultivated tomatoes and onions 50% less than before due to not getting the right prices for the past three years,” said Asif Ahmed. He said that the crops were sold for Rs. 6 to Rs. 8 per kilo in the wholesale market. “This discouraged farmers over the years to grow both the commodities, resulting in a heavy shortage,” he added.

Ahmad said that the crops in lower Sindh were damaged by up to 20% because of heavy rains. “Currently, traders are being forced to import [the vegetables] which results in price hikes,” he revealed.

On Tuesday, the deputy speaker declined the request of Khurram Sher Zaman, a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MPA, who wanted to inculcate the boycott-movement on high-priced vegetables. Zaman later requested the Sindh assembly to take care of citizens’ basic consumer rights.

While addressing the issue, Mr. Nisar Khuhro, a parliamentarian and PPP representative, said,

We know that the price hike is an issue of every household and the federal government should be held responsible as they also raised the prices of fuel. The provincial departments are working to control prices across the province.
