Deb Galbraith, May Program Coordinator introduced Dr. Ludwig Guttmann.  Dr. Guttmann was born in Frankfurt Germany, attended Princeton and got his medical degree from Columbia.  He has written over 184 articles and prefers to ride his bike as his mode of transportation.  He talked about the similarities between Polio and Covid.  Both involving a vaccine that some people did not believe in.  "Doctors are much better at preventing than treating disease".  During the Polio Epidemic there were signs at businesses that said, "Touch It, It is Yours".  Wash you hands was in all bathrooms and other places.   During Covid, we were not to touch things as the virus could spread and hands became raw from so much handwashing.  Polio is a virus that derives from human waste and dirty water.  Covid is respiratory and is very contagious.  Kids under 5 were much more likely to attract Polio. 
In 1985 when Rotary took on the campaign to fight Polio there were 350,000 cases.  Jonas Salk a non- live vaccine was developed vaccine in 1955.  The Sabin a live vaccine developed a few years later and was less expensive.    Dr. Gutmann read one of his stores about The Girl in the Rocking Chair, which was an Iron Lung.
