COVID-19: The Triple Threat of Polio, Monkeypox and SARS-CoV-2
Dr Kevin Kavanagh from Health Watch USAsm  discusses the triple threat of Polio, Monkeypox and SARS-CoV-2. Polio has reemerged in the United States with a single case in New York. For every single case of paralytic polio there are 200 to 300 other cases which are undetected. Polio spreads silently mostly causing mild illness with approximately 72% of cases being asymptomatic. Seven wastewater samples were found to be positive and community spread is suspected. In rural New York only 60% of individuals are vaccinated. Vaccination rates would have to be between 80% to 85% before spread would stop.

Monkeypox is also undergoing exponential spread in the United States. It is spread by skin-to-skin close contact. The virus is related to smallpox and although its mutation rate is low, it can evolve to a more dangerous form. It can also enter the rodent population, if it does this in the United States, we will not be able to eliminate the disease.

Finally, a new SARS-CoV-2 variant, BA.4.6 is spreading which is outcompeting the BA.5 variant. It is not known if it can escape immunity or causes more severe disease. A new report from Yale Univ. estimates that testing all participants on the day of an event will lower spread by 50%.  Jack Pattie Show. Aug. 1, 2022.
