This condition is not new, but the increase in cases we saw starting in 2014 is new ...
Most cases of weakness and paralysis have been in children.
The surge in cases is just as baffling as the syndrome itself: a wide variety of potential causes have been proposed, ranging from the polio virus - which the USA eradicated through vaccines decades ago - to influenza, environmental toxins and West Nile Virus.
The overall rate of AFM is fewer than one in a million, she said. Of those, 30 states said they had cases that were confirmed, suspected or being investigated - including 15 states that said they had confirmed cases in 2018.

Mary said, "We have a 9-year-old grandson that we worry about and other grandchildren and we just don't know enough about it". Another kind of virus was found in only some of the cases.
There is no treatment specifically for AFM, but affected children can undergo physical and occupational therapy to maximize their strength and adapt to their limitations.
"It attacked [my child's] body and her spinal cord a certain way that seems to be happening to other kids too", said Josh Payne, the parent of a child battling AFM.
The CDC encourages people to prevent the disease by staying up to date on vaccines, washing hands and protecting against mosquito bites. Fifteen states said they'd confirmed cases this year.
