What is KDHE doing about this?
  • KDHE has been in contact with CDC to make sure we have the most up-to-date information on AFM and we will facilitate the shipment of specimens to CDC for lab testing as needed
  • KDHE is working to educate providers on what to look for and actions to take if a patient comes to them with symptoms
  • KDHE will continue to investigate cases and share information as needed
  • Once a suspect case is reported to KDHE, we work closely with health care providers to coordinate the collection of specimens and additional clinical information
