A young adult in New York has become the first US resident in nearly a decade to contract polio, state health officials say.

The unnamed patient in Rockland County is said no longer to be contagious, but has developed paralysis from the virus.

Officials say the person was unvaccinated, . . .

Wow.

There is a cool documentary on the first emperor of China – played by That Guy from the Storms . . . No, Not that One . . . the Other Guy – who sought immortality. It was quite clear that, yes, he took "cinnabar" – fucking mercury – and suffered the neurological decline you would expect.

This is known.

"It is known."



But . . . as the rōnin said. . . .

People increased risk for syphilis — including asymptomatic, nonpregnant adolescents and adults who have ever been sexually active and are at high risk for the disease — should be screened for it, according to a reaffirmation by the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) of its 2016 recommendation of syphilis screening for people at increased risk for infection.

How does one get infected if (like wildcunt) they've never been shtooped?

A toilet seat? Strange silverware? Sushi? Fart gas in an elevator?

Earlier this month, the World Health Organization (WHO) put out a global warning over four India-made cough syrups thought to be linked to the deaths of 66 children in The Gambia. Lab analysis of the samples of a syrup made by a 32-year-old firm called Maiden Pharmaceuticals Limited confirmed the presence of "unacceptable amounts" of diethylene glycol and another toxic alcohol called ethylene glycol.

The tainted drugs and the tragic deaths again shone a spotlight on India's $42bn - half of the revenues come from exports - drug manufacturing industry.

Some 3,000 firms operate 10,000 pharmaceutical factories making generics (copies of branded medicines that usually sell for a fraction of their price), over-the-counter medicines, vaccines and ingredients in what is one of the world's largest drug-making countries. Although India imports 70% of the active chemicals for its medicines from China, it is trying to make more of them at home.

A rare but dangerous flesh-eating bacteria is infecting Florida residents

Parts of Florida hit hardest by Hurricane Ian are seeing nearly double the normal number of infections from a flesh-eating bacteria that thrives in brackish floodwaters.

According to the Florida Department of Health, the state has seen 65 cases of Vibrio vulnificus infections and 11 deaths from the bacterium in 2022. Lee County, where Ian made landfall on Sept 28 as a category 4 storm, accounts for 45% of the cases.
