Cases of mystery illness causing paralysis in U.S. kids hit record

Today 08:05 GMT

This year has seen a record number of cases of a mysterious paralyzing illness in children, U.S. health officials said Monday.

Another mystery: More than 17 countries have reported scattered AFM cases, but none have seen cyclical surges like the U.S. has. "This is a key question that has confounded us," said the CDC's Dr. Nancy Messonnier, who is overseeing the agency's outbreak investigation.
