The Folly Of Bill Gates’ Polio Eradication Campaign – Journal of General Virology

MB Comment:  A new article in the Journal of General Virology summarizes the state of global polio eradication efforts and concludes: ‘The remaining issues of principle concern the vaccine, where the oral vaccine that has eradicated disease can itself cause outbreaks.’ Duh. This is no mystery. Bill Gates’ GAVI polio eradication program is using Oral Poliovirus Vaccine (OPV), a live virus vaccine that has been banned in the US and other developed nations.

His premise that repeated vaccination programs with an outdated and dangerous vaccine (some at gunpoint) in third-world countries will eradicate polio is preposterous. If you read this article carefully, its conclusions verge on those of the book The Emperor’s New Clothes. Most medical morons in the scientific community are fawning over Bill Gate’s multiple billion dollar boondoggle global vaccination program ‘What a beautiful suit of invisible clothes you have, Emperor Gates.’ But this article’s view is like the young child in the story, who doesn’t keep up the pretense and blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all.

The two really alarming issues raised in the article are: 1) As long as drinking water is contaminated with sewage, polio virus will circulate. So why not focus on improving sanitation? No vanity reward bonus points for the Emperor from building clean water delivery systems and sewage plants? 2) Mutation of vaccine-strain viruses with circulating enteroviruses. This polio eradication program is a global Dr. Frankenstein experiment that is creating new rogue viruses.

This article does not mention the issue of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), which is the new pseudo-scientific definition for polio symptoms with a negative polio virus lab test. Guess what? The paralysis symptoms of polio are the same thing as those of vaccine adverse reactions. The multiple doses of vaccines they are cramming down third world residents are creating an epidemic of neurological damage that medical authorities are shunting into a new disease definition, polio without polio virus (AFP). The sooner Emperor Bill Gates with his beautiful suit of clothes declares victory and goes home, the better for impoverished third world human beings. If he really wanted to do something for public health, he would devote his billions to improving sanitation. The elimination of contaminated drinking water had more to do with disease eradication in the developed world than any vaccination program.


The polio-eradication programme and issues of the end game

Most infections in the world are believed to occur by the faecal–oral route …

Thus, when hygiene is poor, exposure to infected faecal material will occur while the individual is still protected by maternal antibody and infection will be safely confined to the gut. As standards improve and exposure is less common, infection will happen slightly later in life after the loss of maternal immunity and viraemia and disease can result. This gave rise to the alternative name of infantile paralysis for polio. This is also consistent with the occurrence of vaccine-associated poliomyelitis in the UK …

Unless poliovirus is eradicated, it is obvious that the absence of the disease requires a high-quality immunization programme that must be maintained indefinitely …

whilst OPV imitated infection and would therefore protect against subsequent infection by wild-type virus, it was thought to work only poorly in tropical countries (Ofosu-Amaah, 1984) …

In fact, the relationship between eradication of the wild-type virus and the elimination of detectable cases of disease is more complicated and there are several examples where disease has been undetectable, while wild-type virus continues to be found in sewage (El Bassioni et al., 2003; Manor et al., 1999; Más Lago et al., 2003; Tambini et al., 1993).

In fact, from the early trials it was clear that a single passage through the human gut, particularly of the type 3 strain, produced a virus of increased neurovirulence; as the vaccine came into use, there were reports of poliomyelitis associated temporally with vaccine …

Epidemiologically significant vaccine-derived strains
In the period from about 1988 to 1992, poliovirus strains isolated from cases of polio in Egypt included type 2 viruses that were subsequently found to be related closely to the vaccine strain; they had been misidentified as wild type at the time (Yang et al., 2003). The existence of circulating vaccine-derived strains was first recognized in an outbreak of 22 cases in Hispaniola in 2000–2001 (Kew et al., 2002). The island comprises Haiti and the Dominican Republic and the strains were shown to be related closely to the Sabin type 1 strain; based on the degree of drift, they had been circulating unnoticed for about 2 years. They were also recombinants between the vaccine strains and unidentified C type enteroviruses …

Barriers to eradication
Infection with poliovirus is inapparent; even where the infection leads to disease, there is typically a preclinical phase of 7–30 days, and most infections are entirely silent. Quarantine is ineffective in influencing epidemics (Paul, 1971) for this reason, and surveillance of paralytic cases detects very few of the total number of infections. This raises major difficulties for an eradication programme where, if one area has the virus, the entire world is at risk. Even where immunization programmes have been of high quality, outbreaks may still occur, as demonstrated recently in China …

The major problems, however, are to decide when the virus has been eradicated and how to stop vaccinating, when the vaccine itself can become a circulating virus that can paralyse. The belief is that the virus will die out faster than susceptible build-up, and surveillance is clearly key. Some have suggested that the problems of the post-eradication era are so great and eradication so uncertain that attempts to eradicate the virus should be abandoned and efforts redirected to control of the disease (Arita et al., 2006; Chumakov et al., 2007; Thompson & Tebbens, 2007).

Conclusions and summary
The global polio-eradication programme has eliminated the disease from most of the world, apparently including India, where the challenge has been greatest. However, the agent must be eradicated to eradicate the disease and, where silent circulation is possible, as for poliovirus, this is not easy to track. The remaining issues of principle concern the vaccine, where the oral vaccine that has eradicated disease can itself cause outbreaks …
