This makes 2018 a year with maximum number of cases say the officials.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified 80 confirmed cases of acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, which mostly affects children. Again in 2016 there were 149 cases followed by 33 in 2017 announced the CDC. None of the cases have tested positive for polio virus says the CDC.
The CDC is closely watching the infection's activity across the country, and it continues to look for causes and risk factors associated with AFM.
The patients' symptoms have been most similar to complications of infection with certain viruses, including poliovirus, non-polio enteroviruses, adenoviruses, and West Nile virus. But not all patients have tested positive for EV-D68. However this could not be pinpointed since not all of the cases were positive for this virus. But the CDC says the case is not so certain. "We are encouraging healthcare providers to recognize and report to their health department patients who they suspect may have AFM, and for health departments to send this information to the CDC to help us understand the nationwide burden of AFM".
The CDC said AFM peaks in between years, normally during late summer and fall.
AFM attacks the nervous system, causing weakness in the arms, legs, and spinal cord.

What researchers and the CDC do agree on is the need for quick testing and for doctors and ER staff to be aware of the symptoms. Nationwide as of October 6, the most recent nationwide data available, 142 measles cases had been reported, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "We have not yet determined who is at higher risk for developing AFM, or the reasons why they may be at higher risk", it adds.
"My goal with the children with AFM was to restore hip stability and then motion of the upper legs", said Dr. Amy Moore.
However, physicians admit they are unaware of the long-term outcomes for those with AFM. It is also unknown why some patients recover and others have prolonged effects. Rehabilitation therapy can help patients regain function.
The CDC takes reports from each state health department and then examines the medical findings.
Since then, according to the ADH, three cases have been confirmed and two were shown to be something else.
