CDC confirms 62 cases of polio-like illness across US

Jessie Hellmann 9 hrs ago.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating 127 suspected cases of a polio-like condition that mostly affects children.
The CDC said that 62 of those cases have been confirmed in 22 states in 2018.

Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) is a rare but serious condition that can cause paralysis, drawing comparisons to polio.
AFM primarily impacts the nervous system and weakens muscles.
There isn't a cure for AFM and the CDC does not yet know its long-term impacts.

What is the lowest common denominator for these people? The article and the statements made by the CDC are so vague that one has to wonder if it is intentional.... hmmmm…..
Your life is the sum total of the choices you make.
If you don't laugh at yourself, a whole bunch of people will volunteer to do it for you
I never lose. I either win, or I learn....
