Symptoms typically include sudden weakness in one or more arms or legs, along with loss of muscle tone and decreased or absent reflexes.

WSIL- An alert for parents health officials say there's a serious respiratory virus spreading across the state.

Oishei Children's Hospital says it's probable a 3-year old child named Kameron has acute flaccid myelitis.

Illinois Department of Public Health Director Nirav Shah said Friday it's understandable parents would be concerned.

Some 38 cases of acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, have been confirmed in 16 states across the nation through September 30, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has been monitoring and investigating an increasing number of cases of AFM since 2014.

At this point there isnt evidence that would point to a single source of illness among these cases, said Dr. Scott Lindquist, state infectious disease epidemiologist at the Department of Health. NYSDOH reports suspect cases of AFM due to EV-D68 to CDC for further investigation, and no cases have been confirmed in New York State in 2018 thus far. In 2017 there were three cases, and since the beginning of 2018 there has been one case in the state.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle expect updated news ZIK.UA
A 29-year-old Canadian tourist Braden Fraser from Toronto said that "it's wonderful". The child is due in the spring of 2019 and will be the seventh in line to the throne.


A frightening new illness is on the rise in the US, and it bears a striking resemblance to Polio. Kameron's diagnosis of AFM would be the first in New York State this year if confirmed.

AFM looks very much like polio.

Various viruses can cause AFM, including West Nile and enteroviruses.

While the illness has been seen mostly in children, there are some adult cases reported as well, with the Michigan Department of Public Health's Lynn Sutfin pointing to one in the state. Most of the cases that CDC has learned about have been in children.

In general, infants, children and teenagers are most likely to get infected with EV-D68 and become ill because they do not yet have immunity from previous exposures to enteroviruses. Well continue to investigate and share information when we have it.
