The country had a melt down over Ebola which killed or sickened a few people and got us an Ebola czar with no experience for a few weeks. But there wasn't much said about the mysterious virus that has killed 12 children, left 94 with polio like paralysis, and sickened over 1,000. Lots of unanswered questions. We've finally got a new name: Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), but the experts are not sure how it is related to EV-D68 virus. CDC is unable to answer whether the EV-D68 epidemic is connected to the tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children allowed to enter the U.S. from Central and South America in the last couple of years. EV-D68 is known to have circulated in El Salvador and Nicaragua.
