A rare condition known for its polio-like effects has been diagnosed in six Minnesota children since mid-September. Cases have been reported from the Twin Cities, central and northeastern Minnesota.

The condition, which affects mainly children, attacks the nervous system, causing muscles to weaken. "Disease investigators are working aggressively with health care providers to gather information about the cases", the Minnesota Department of Public Health said in a statement. It can be a complication following a viral infection, but environmental and genetic factors may also be a cause. Symptoms include limb weakness, facial drooping and trouble swallowing or talking.

AFM cases first spiked in the United States in August 2014.
