Experts discovered the strain in wastewater in the cities of Jerusalem, Tiberias and Beit Shemesh, it stressed.
Unlike other strains, this one is resistant to the polio vaccine that is administered in drops, the news outlet warned.
However, it explained that the so-called inactivated polio vaccine (IPV), administered in four injections, is effective.
Although IPV has a 99 to 100% protection rate, it does not prevent the recipient from becoming a polio carrier and can therefore transmit the virus to others, it said.
Israel detected its first case of polio in 33 years last March, causing concern. Polio is a highly infectious disease that invades the nervous system and can cause total paralysis.
