Is there a link between polio, monkey pox and corona? An expert explains

In the shadow of the sixth wave and the renewed outbreak of the corona virus, the polio virus outbreak has also recently begun among unvaccinated children and monkey pox in many countries around the world. For that, Dr. Lior Hecht-Sagi From the Department of Public Health at the Ministry of Health, she spoke this morning (Friday) with Judy Shalom Nir Mozes on 103FM. She also explained why we have been witnessing an outbreak of the polio virus recently.

At the beginning of the conversation, she was asked how several epidemics broke out together, to which she replied: “An excellent question that scientists all over the world are struggling with. There are all sorts of hypotheses. “.

“Polio can be taken as a test case, and we know that polio is a disease that we have no treatment for. Our only way to treat it is to actually prevent it, and prevention is done by vaccines. We want the children to be as immune as possible. “

She then referred to the importance of vaccinating children against the polio virus: “All children born since 2013 received all vaccines because in 2013 the attenuated live vaccine returned to the vaccination routine in the State of Israel in light of the outbreak in the south of the country at the time. “In the live vaccine is weakened. We started the current dye with a 51 percent immune coverage, while the dye we are currently dying has raised the coverage to about 80 percent.”

“I want to separate the two vaccines and explain, the killed vaccine protects the child itself, it causes that even if the child is infected with polio he will not get polio. The second vaccine, the absolute animal given in drops, I call it a vaccine that protects the family. “The virus in the feces and in fact by doing so it protects for example a newborn brother who has not yet been vaccinated, we do not have a grandparent with immunosuppression. The combination of the two vaccines is very important for full protection,” she added.

“In terms of polio, children who are at the age of milk drops + up to the age of six receive the vaccines in the milk drops, as parents know. Children over the age of 6 supplement the live vaccine attenuated with drops in HMO clinics. We have extended the hours of vaccination. Next and this thing is on the table, “she concluded.
