Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts.

Nearly 3 weeks ago Peru's Ministry of Health declared a 90-day Health Emergency due to a sharp rise in the number of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) cases reported across the country. We saw a similar declaration 4 summers ago in Peru, which was eventually linked to a Campylobacter outbreak.

Peru also reported an outbreak in 2018 which was tentatively linked to an enterovirus outbreak (see Outbreak of Guillain-Barre syndrome in Peru), and earlier outbreaks have been loosely tied to Zika infections.

While many people mistakenly believe that vaccines are the primary cause of GBS, it is actually a rare event. GBS is most often associated with bacterial or viral infections

The CDC describes the disorder:

What is Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS)?
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages their nerve cells, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. GBS can cause symptoms that usually last for a few weeks. Most people recover fully from GBS, but some people have long-term nerve damage. In very rare cases, people have died of GBS, usually from difficulty breathing. In the United States, an estimated 3,000 to 6,000 people develop GBS each year.
