IMMEDIATE ATTENTION

The biggest red flag for the con­di­tion is muscle weak­ness, and chil­dren who de­velop it should be rushed

to the hos­pi­tal, CDC di­rec­tor Robert Red­field said Tues­day. “AFM is a med­i­cal emer­gency that re­quires immediate care,” he said. AFM is a se­ri­ous con­di­tion of the spinal cord; paral­y­sis can

de­velop within hours.
