What are the Symptoms of Wild Poliovirus?

Fri, October 04, 2019 2:00 AM

The symptoms are similar to that of the normal polio condition. The virus is usually spread through contamination of food and water. The infected person and their fecal matter can also spread the virus. Here are some symptoms.

·         Fever
·         Fatigue
·         Headache
·         Vomiting
·         Stiffness of the neck and pain in the limbs

These, as you can see, are very common symptoms and might not give you any hint. These can, however, be the cause of 1% of irreversible paralysis.
