    Surprisingly, 95% of all individuals infected with polio have no apparent symptoms.Another 4%–8% of infected individuals have symptoms of a minor, non-specific nature, such as sorethroat and fever, nausea, vomiting, and other common symptoms of any viral illness.About 1%–2% of infected individuals develop non paralytic aseptic (viral) meningitis, with temporary stiffness of the neck, back, and/or legs. Less than 1% of all polio infections result in the classic “flaccid paralysis,” where the patient is left with permanent weakness or paralysis of legs, arms, or both.
