Polio found in London Sewage Samples

It is believed to be from people who have actually contracted the virus been vaccinated and this is the waste from their bodies

"The viruses' genetic sequences suggest "there has been some spread between closely linked individuals in north and east London," the UKHSA said."

Well somebody must have been not vaccinated and infectious for them to have infected others.

Like it said in the OP's link?

Quote:
People infected with polio, or who have been vaccinated with a live version of the virus, shed traces of the virus in their stool – which eventually end up in sewage wastewater. So the current hypothesis is that an infected person brought the virus into London and then spread it to others who weren't immunized.

"It sounds like the outbreak is very small," says virologist Angela Rasmussen, who studies polio at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada. "The outbreak could be within an extended family. Transmission would require a concentration of people who had not yet been vaccinated."

Lockdown now!

Otherwise it could cross contaminate and mutate into MonkeyPolo which would see an invasion of swimming pools with people drowning whilst trying to throw balls at each other.

Best stay at home.

Polio is bad enough on its own. Only ones at risk are unvaccinated but the only worry over that is if they mutate to vaccine resistant but that would take a long time
