Polio outbreaks in Africa caused by polio vaccine

The following is an excerpt from The Vaccine Reaction.

The government of Burundi has declared a national public health emergency due to an outbreak of live vaccine strain poliovirus infections in that country.

A mutated strain of the vaccine strain poliovirus, which originally came from the type 2 monovalent oral polio vaccine (mOPV2), was identified in a four-year-old boy in western Burundi and in two other children who came in contact with the boy.

Health officials also found traces of type 2 circulating vaccine-derived polioviruses (cVDPV2s) in five samples taken of sewage water.

Similar outbreaks of OPV-derived poliovirus has occurred recently in several other countries, including Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Madagascar, Malawi, Nigeria and Yemen, as well as in Israel, the United Kingdom and the United States.

An Associated Press article last week noted that in recent years, “the oral polio vaccine has caused far more cases of polio than the wild polio virus.” In Africa alone, “more than 400 cases of polio last year were linked to the oral vaccine.”

Around the world, nearly 800 children or young adults in about two dozen countries developed paralytic polio after contracting OPV-derived poliovirus.

Over the past few decades, there has been an increase in outbreaks of live attenuated OPV-derived poliovirus infections.

In response, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as part of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), funded development of a novel oral polio vaccine type 2 (nOPV2)—a genetically modified version of the existing mOPV2—which is believed more stable and less likely to cause polio than the mOPV2.

On Mar. 16, 2023, the GPEI announced it had received reports of seven cases of cVDPV2 in Burundi and the DRC linked the vaccine strain polio cases with the nOPV2.

According to the statement from the GPEI, “The viruses were isolated from the stool samples of seven children with acute flaccid paralysis (AFP).”

It is tragic but not unexpected that the use of live virus [oral polio] vaccines would cause the spread of vaccine-derived polio given the propensity of these viruses to back-mutate into their paralytic form.

It is even more alarming that the paralytic form is now circulating among the population of the Congo’s and Burundi’s children.”

  1. So there were how many cases before vaccines induced it? Or is it chasing a problem that never existed?

  2. This Article,Send what I’m about to tell you, to CDC and World Health org. To check it out ? What I believe the culprit is here is that regions of poorer Africa and other Countries have bad Water treatment facilities, treating water, and in some cases may be spreading diseases .They may need to better maintain water treatment checks and add Sml. % Clorine Bleach to the water treatment because they cannot afford better Ozone water treatment plants to treat there water…I’m surprised Haiti country is not having these problems on World stage. = Rainy Day thoughts in Africa ??

  3. My earlier post and this particular Formula you can have CDC to check it out and treat 3rd World people in Chemistry if it pans out.? You take Iopanioc Acid and use it in % to cut and add with Cholecalciferol, Thus ( C27 H44 O + H2N ) May be better for Thyroid, liver etc functions it should be a aggressive improvements in the Family subgrouping extensions in Chemistry to Vitamin ~ D3 added chem mol. sub-groupings..?” You Don’t have to be crazy to live on this planet but sometimes it pans out in Chemistry for the better.? Random Chemistry Idea’s from ” Area 15 Indiana ” on a Cold Nasty Saturday day , because there’s been more then Corn going on in Indiana since 1980..LOL ?

  4. In Maldives, April 2021, polio vaccine paralysed a 3 month old baby’s hands and legs. Childhood vaccines are mandatory in the Maldives. However, no public authority nor any doctor expressed concern about this baby or possible risk to other babies. Crickets.
