Enterovirus D68 Kills, Too

While much of the media focus on Ebola and it’s potential spread, another virus is infecting and killing people across the country. USA Today reports, “The CDC has confirmed 594 people across 43 states and the District of Columbia with illness caused by enterovirus D68 between mid-August and Monday. The virus has been detected in four other people who have died, the centers said. The role EV-D68 played in these deaths is unclear; state and local health departments are investigating, the CDC said.” On Monday, a four-year-old New Jersey boy succumbed to D68. According to USA Today, “The virus is spread through close contact with infected people. Coughs, sneezes and touching objects or surfaces with the virus are common ways to become infected, the health department said.” Keep a close eye on this one.
