Health officials say colder weather could bring fewer AFM cases

The number of AFM cases in Colorado could soon be starting to drop. State health officials say as winter arrives, the colder temperatures usually also bring a decrease in enterovirus cases. There have been 15 confirmed cases and 3 more suspected cases of AFM, or acute flaccid myelitis, a polio-like disease that typically affects young children. There have been no deaths from AFM this year and almost all of the kids have fully recovered.
