3. Will the current surge of AFM reach 2014 levels?
from By Jessica Taylor
From Oct. 12:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed 50 cases this year of acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, in 24 states as of Aug. 31 — nearly double the number from 2015 when 21 cases were reported for the whole year. Health officials nationwide are worried that the rising number of cases of the mysterious, polio-like illness could reach the level of 2014, when AFM paralyzed 120 children. In any case, it's never too early for health practitioners to be alert for symptoms of AFM.
