What Is Polio?
What Is Polio?
After catching the poliovirus, however, still before polio, there are flu-like symptoms. The text http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/polio/basics/symptoms/con-20030957
“Signs and symptoms, which generally last one to 10 days, include:
Sore throat
Back pain or stiffness
Neck pain or stiffness
Pain or stiffness in the arms or legs
Muscle weakness or tenderness
As said, these are the symptoms, though there can be more.
How Often Do the Symptoms Appear?
Polio is a deadly disease, but not many who get it show any symptoms. In fact, most people- 72%- don’t have any symptoms at all! Of the 28% of people that will actually have symptoms, an even smaller portion will have serious symptoms, sometimes related to death. However, these are very rare. A few examples would be
of which only 1/25 people get, and paralysis- only 1/200 people have that symptom! Even with the small number of people that have
, it is the symptom in which the most people die, because it sometimes affects the muscles that help us breathe.
I think that my first text, http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/polio/basics/symptoms/con-20030957 really focuses on the types of polio and about them, such as paraletic polio, and how it is the most lethal type of polio. It also talks a lot about everything briefly, in bullets. For example, instead of listing the early symptoms, it states: “
Sore throat
Back pain or stiffness
Neck pain or stiffness
Pain or stiffness in the arms or legs
Muscle weakness or tenderness
It is very brief. I feel like it could have more to it. Also, there are no pictures (fine, only one) to support it more and is only text.
Comparing Two Texts
After reading my texts on polio, I think that it can be lethal but is still not lethal at the same time. This makes me wonder a lot of things, and both of my texts helped supply information to help me.

Just think about it this way: polio combined with virus, and boom, you get the poliovirus! Back on subject, most times polio is spread by meeting person-to-person, but can also be spread in other ways. This is because of the fact that it is a virus.

Text One: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/polio/basics/symptoms/con-20030957
Text Two: http://www.cdc.gov/polio/about/
A few things that are the same would be that they both talked about the symptoms that happen before polio. I already said what http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/polio/basics/symptoms/con-20030957 states, but http://www.cdc.gov/polio/about/ states: “About 1 out of 4 people with poliovirus infection will have flu-like symptoms that may include—
Sore throat
Stomach pain”
Also, they both talk about paralysis and death, but there is not much else that they overlap about, they both go on on their own direction. This leads me to believe that polio is very deep and cannot be learned about in just a minute, it takes time and effort to learn about it due to it’s detail and it’s information.
Polio is now a subject that I am now very interested in. There is so much to it, and so much to learn and so much interesting facts that it is easy to get sucked in a absorbed in. These two texts have really helped me learn about this interesting and amazing disease.
My other text, http://www.cdc.gov/polio/about/, really focuses on polio in general. It talks about how polio only affects human, the symptoms, but not anything about the types of polio. It is very general and focuses on everything. It states: “Poliovirus only infects humans. It is very contagious and spreads through person-to-person contact. The virus lives in an infected person’s throat and intestines.” See how overall and general it is? It has info, but doesn’t focus on anything other than polio. No post-polio syndrome, no this, no that. However it does have one thing: Pictures! There are pictures and captions to support it.
History of Polio

In the early 20th century, polio was very feared. Many people were scared about the disease because it paralyzed many - too many- people a year. However, soon after polio vaccines were discovered, polio was barely thought about as a public health issue. However, in developing countries, it was still an issue. Soon after, 99% of polio was gone. Still, the last 1% of polio is still remaining, and proves to be a challenge to wipe out completely.
