The Zoonotic Viruses


What most kids did on a hot summer day.

 

   It was the scariest zoonotic (animal origin) disease of the second half of the 20th century and the greatest fear of every mother in the 1950s. Polio was a mostly summer disease that could strike children without warning and cripple them for life, or even worse, result in their confinement within the dreaded "Iron Lung" machine. But why was Polio a summer disease, and why did it occur after each of our world wars? Doctors were never able to identify the original source of this virus, and therefore were helpless to advise parents on how to avoid their child's exposure to this deadly disease.

   We suddenly found ourselves in the same position as our European ancestors in the 1300s, who didn't realize that a lack of sanitation in European cities had resulted in an overpopulation of rats, forcing nature to activate the natural mechanism of disease to reduce rat populations. Unfortunately, the fleas that were spreading the plague through the rat population also spread the plague to humans. The Bubonic (rat) plague killed millions of people in Europe, and the medical community today still reflects upon the human ignorance that resulted in so many deaths in the late Middle Ages. Unfortunately however, it seems that not much has changed, because doctors in the 1950s did not take notice of the subtle changes that were happening in the natural world around them. If our doctors had successfully identified the original host animal for Polio they would have known how this disease was being spread to humans, and could have easily prevented the deaths of thousands of children and adults in the U.S.
