Polio

Polio

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is an acute viral infection spread from person to person through the faecal-oral route. There are a wide range of symptoms in polio as the virus targets the blood stream and it is then transported around the body. Some patients may recover completely, but in others it destroys motor neurons, leading to muscle weakness and paralysis.
