Health authorities in Britain have declared a national incident after finding evidence suggesting local spread of poliovirus in London.

No cases of polio have been identified so far, and the risk to the public is low. But health authorities urged anyone who is not fully immunized against poliovirus, particularly young children, to immediately seek vaccines.

“Most of the U.K. population will be protected from vaccination in childhood, but in some communities with low vaccine coverage, individuals may remain at risk,” said Dr. Vanessa Saliba, a consultant epidemiologist for the U.K. Health Security Agency.

Routine surveillance of sewage in the country picks up poliovirus once or twice a year, but between February and May, officials identified the virus in several samples collected in London, according to Dr. Shahin Huseynov, technical officer for the World Health Organization’s vaccine-preventable diseases and immunization program in Europe.

Genetic analysis suggests that the samples have a common origin, most likely an individual who traveled to the country around the New Year, Dr. Huseynov said. The last four samples collected appear to have evolved from this initial introduction, likely in unvaccinated children.

Natural selection is coming huh? The earth is trying to fix itself about all the environmental damage humans cause. So now it’s trying to correct the problem by depopulation a bit with disease.
