The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an update to the national investigation of acute neurologic illness with focal limb weakness of unknown etiology in children and reported an addition 13 cases have been identified.
As of November 20, CDC has verified reports of 88 cases in 32 states, up from 75 cases one week ago.
The CDC reported in late September that the United States is currently experiencing a nationwide outbreak of EV-D68 associated with severe respiratory disease. The possible linkage of this cluster of neurologic disease to this large EV-D68 outbreak is part of the current investigation.
The number of new Enterovirus D68 cases in the United States are decreasing. As of November 20, 2014, CDC or state public health laboratories have confirmed a total of 1,121 people in 47 states and the District of Columbia. Reports from most states over the last couple months have indicated reduced EV-D68-like illness activity. However, the CDC warns that EV-D68 infections could continue through late fall.

There is no mystery here and both the CDC and the USDA know it as do cattlemen who have been fighting with this same condition for years.
This unidentified enterovirus ( respiratory illness ) is the first step to full blown acute flaccid myelitis ( paralysis ).
These very same symptoms, from outbreaks of respiratory illness to paralysis to death, have been observed in cattle for many years.
In veterinarian medicine it is know as Polioencephalomalacia ( PEM ), which causes polio like symptoms and has been on the rise recently.
“[quote] Polioencephalomalacia (PEM) is an important neurologic disease of ruminants that is seen worldwide. Cattle, sheep, goats, deer, and camelids are affected. The term PEM denotes a lesion with certain gross and microscopic features that are not specific for a particular etiology or pathogenesis. Historically, PEM has been associated with altered thiamine status, but more recently an association with high sulfur intake has been observed. [/quote]

Sulfur is added to the corn mash in the production of ethanol.
The corn mash known as distillers grain, which is known to be high in sulfur, is then fed to cattle ( dairy products and meat ), pigs and chickens ( eggs ) which are consumed by humans.
Sulfur is a passive mineral just like calcium.
Children consume more of these products then adults in the way of milk and meats as fast
foods and school lunches and at home as “lean” ground meat.
So why the cover up?
