"We do not yet know the long-term effects of AFM", a CDC report said. It can also be caused by poliovirus and non-polio enteroviruses, mosquito-borne viruses (such as West Nile virus or Zika virus) and possibly by non-infectious conditions. "That enterovirus is transmittable from person to person, but you can't actually catch AFM from somebody else".
"There are cases of good recovery and good potential for good healing", said Sinner.
