Enterovirus D68

Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of many non-polio enteroviruses. Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) infections are thought to occur less commonly than infections with other enteroviruses. EV-D68 was first identified in California in 1962. Compared with other enteroviruses, EV-D68 has been rarely reported in the United States for the last 40 years.

Hospitals in Missouri and Illinois are seeing more children than usual with severe respiratory illness caused by enterovirus D68.

Several other states are investigating clusters of children with severe respiratory illness, possibly due to enterovirus D68.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is watching this situation closely and helping the states with testing of specimens. Read More
