Does Israel’s New Polio Outbreak Threaten Global Eradication Efforts?: Scientific American | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
An expert sheds light on what polio virus found in the nation’s sewers means for the world
Sharrock's insight:

from the article: "The virus has only been found in sewage at this point. There have not been any clinical cases of this so far; no children have been paralyzed. In the past [Israel] has detected [polio] virus from surrounding countries and it has disappeared very quickly, but this time it is persisting for longer. The virus can’t live in the sewage itself and multiply. What we are seeing is persistence of [people excreting] the virus."


could be of interest for common core science teachers and ELA teachers to discuss various issues: #vaccination, #journalism, #polio in #history, polio in #literature, #Salk.
