The Washington Department of Health said Wednesday that the children are 6 or younger. Among them is two-year-old Julia Payne, whose symptoms started off resembling those of a common cold.

The children live in King, Pierce, Lewis, Snohomish and Skagit counties. The CDC says the condition is not new, but there's been an increase in cases starting in 2014. Since then, at least 362 cases have been reported across the country, according to the federal agency. NYSDOH reports suspect cases of AFM due to EV-D68 to CDC for further investigation, and no cases have been confirmed in New York State in 2018 thus far.

In September, the Illinois Department of Public Health sent out an alert to health providers about AFM.

OR hasn't had any cases of AFM this year. As of now there has been 10 cases of AFM reported in Northern Illinois. Medical experts have said AFM itself is not believed to be contagious, but the causes of it could be. "We know that some patients diagnosed with AFM have recovered quickly, and some continue to have paralysis and require ongoing care".

"It is sudden onset of weakness in an arm, leg, face or the muscles that help us swallow and we use to speak", Dr. Amaran Moodley told ABC News. The cause of any individual case of AFM can be hard to determine, and often, no cause is found. CDC specialists will make the final determination if these cases are AFM.

The infection is similar to viruses like polio and West Nile that affect the nervous system - especially the spinal cord - causing muscles and reflexes to become weak. However, it recommends practicing disease prevention measures, including staying up-to-date on vaccines and protecting yourself from mosquito bites.
