According to the World Wide Web report, after years of hard work, wild poliovirus no longer exists in Africa. This good news has also excited the African people. The medical and health conditions in Africa are already very bad, but there are a large number of viruses spreading widely in the region, and the outbreak of the new crown epidemic has caused heavy losses to African countries, so the timely elimination of a virus is also for local people. One thing that can make people feel gratifying. According to the World Health Organization, the last time this case occurred in Africa was 4 years ago, and the location was in the northeastern part of Nigeria. The wild polio virus has another relatively popular name called polio virus. The wanton spread of this virus has caused many children to face paralysis for life.
However, fortunately, more and more countries and front-line health workers are aware of the horror of the virus and are constantly working hard to help these children who are suffering from the virus relieve their pain as soon as possible. In fact, more than 1.8 million children have been rescued from paralysis for life. It is conceivable that the lives of these children will also undergo a radical change in the future. Poliomyelitis is caused by three viruses. Their common feature is that they can directly penetrate the nervous system. It only takes a few hours to paralyze the body and become a lifelong disability, and it is also fatal. The probability is not low.
Coupled with the weak health system in Africa, this has always been one of the important viruses that harm African children. Generally speaking, the infection of the virus is mainly children under 5 years old, which is also the most troublesome place for everyone. After all, there is still a lot of hope for a 5-year-old child, but it is very likely that because of the unfortunate infection of this virus, he will only be able to stay in bed for life. Therefore, in 1996, Africa held its 32nd regular meeting, and the heads of state even promised to eradicate the virus.
It now appears that after more than 20 years of hard work, these African countries have indeed fulfilled their promises. When the 32nd Standing Committee was held that year, there were still 75,000 children in Africa paralyzed by the virus each year, but now the virus has disappeared in Africa, which means that the future living environment of African children will become Healthier. However, although the virus has temporarily disappeared, people cannot relax their vigilance because no one can be sure that the virus will come back one day. Therefore, the African region should continue to maintain the vaccination rate to reduce the possibility of the virus reappearing. Sex. We must know that the African region has made a lot of efforts to eliminate this virus. Now it is only one step away from the final success, so the more at this time, the more we must stabilize our mind.
In fact, it is not only in Africa. From a global perspective, polio cases have been reduced by 99.9% from 1988 to the present, which means that humans are very close to defeating the virus, which also makes humans excited. Endless, after all, the virus does threaten the lives and health of countless children. The sooner it disappears, the better it will be for human development. In this case, it is inevitable that people will think about when humans will be able to defeat the new coronavirus. From the above description, we can find that the reason why humans are able to defeat the polio virus is because we have developed a vaccine and started to promote it on a large scale. In contrast, there are still many unsolved problems in the development of new crown vaccines in countries around the world.
At present, the only vaccine that has been announced to be registered comes from Russia. Regardless of the actual effectiveness of this vaccine, the output of this vaccine is far from reaching the world's needs. So if we want to control the new coronavirus as soon as possible and make this virus disappear from human society like the polio virus mentioned above, then the most important thing for us now is to develop a vaccine as much as possible. And to persuade the public to believe in the effectiveness of the vaccine. All in all, since humans can defeat the polio virus, we believe that humans will also be able to defeat other viruses. It just takes a certain amount of time.
