It invades the nervous system, and can cause paralysis or even death in a matter of hours. Wild poliovirus (WPV) enters the body through the mouth, in water or food that has been contaminated with faecal material from an infected person. The virus multiplies in the intestine and is excreted by the infected person in faeces, which can pass on the virus to others. Polio mainly affects children under 5 years of age.
