Polio In New York? Wait, What?

By | September 10, 2022 | 0 Comments
NY Governor declares state of emergency as polio virus found in 5 localities. Oh yes, for 2½ years we focused totally on Covid lockdowns, Covid school closures, Covid masks, and Covid vaccines. Meanwhile, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, and other unpopular diseases fell by the wayside. Apparently vaccination against polio and other infectious diseases also was neglected.

Perhaps there is a lesson here. Concentrating on one danger need not take all attention away from other dangers. Situational awareness applies everywhere, not only to physical danger. “Check six” is a good rule for everyone.
