Federal health officials released the updated numbers on Tuesday, and said they still had no idea what was causing the spike in AFM cases or why kids were getting it in the first place. Polio, while once widespread, has been largely eradicated due to the polio vaccine. The CDC still has not pin-pointed exactly what's causing this disorder, but they suspect a virus that circulates this time of the year.
"We're looking really broadly at any possible cause", the CDC's Dr. Messonnier said, "so we're looking at anything that might be causing the AFM, because our earlier investigations haven't revealed the cause".
Victims generally suffer from muscle weakness and some paralysis of the face, neck, back, arms and legs. "Parents need to know that AFM is rare even with the increase in cases we are seeing now". "We don't fully understand the long-term consequences of AFM".
"Although all cases are tested to see if it is tied to the polio virus and all have been negative, polio is a known cause of AFM", Nesemeier said.
Some patients diagnosed with AFM were found to have enterovirus D68, a cousin of poliovirus, in their systems.
The number is almost double the amount observed in 2017, when 33 AFM cases were found in the US. To date, no pathogen has been consistently detected in AFM patients.
The Douglas County Health Department's Phil Rooney said, "This is not a diagnosis like flu or other diseases where you can do blood draw fluids".
"Numbness or tingling is rare in people with AFM, although some people have pain in their arms or legs".
At the press conference, Messonnier emphasized how rare the disease is.
