Authorities say they have no confirmed cases of the nervous system condition called acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, in NY.
The Washington Department of Health said Wednesday that the children are 6 or younger.
CDC officials said that they have not confirmed a cause for the majority of AFM cases and continue to investigate.
The first five possible cases affected children in King, Pierce, Lewis and Snohomish counties. According to the CDC, the largest number of cases, about 50, were reported in September 2014 before dropping to single digits in following months. Experts don't know what causes it.
"There are now two possible cases reported in 2018 that are under investigation", said the Maryland health department's Brittany Fowler. "We're working closely with medical providers and public health agencies". Recently, Minnesota state officials also put out an alert after receiving reports of six recent AFM cases involving children.
Numbness or tingling is rare in patients with AFM, but some patients have pain in their arms or legs. 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. In the case of the Batavia child, doctors say Julia Payne contracted what's known as an enterovirus and that was the cause of her AFM.
Some viruses and germs have been linked to AFM, including common germs that can cause colds and sore throats, and respiratory infections.
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.
