I read from 9to5google.com: Seeing firsthand the impact of the poliovirus on kids, Dame Jean put in huge work to finding an antibiotic for polio, including assisting with discovering that there was more than one strain of the infection.
Today due to the outbreak of the pandemic, Google decided to honor a Polio Scientist, “Dame Jean Macnamara.”. Because in 1955, during the polio outbreak, Dame Jean’s endeavors directly affected the improvement of polio antibiotics.
