About the Enverovirus 68
The Enteroviruses can cause
coughing, sneezing, and fever.
This year (Fall 2014) the enterovirus that is most commonly
causing respiratory illness in children
across the country is enterovirus-D68 (EV-D68).
Infants, children, and
teenagers are at higher risk than adults for getting infected and sick with
EV-D68. That is because they have not been exposed to these types of viruses
before, and they do not yet have immunity (protection) built up to fight the
disease. If your child has asthma, he or she may
be at greater risk for severe respiratory illness from EV-D68.
Signs and Symptoms
EV-D68 can cause mild to
severe respiratory illness, depending on the person's immune system.
Mild symptoms may include fever,
runny nose, sneezing, cough, and body and muscle aches.
Severe symptoms may include
wheezing and difficulty breathing.
