Health officials say 12 states now have respiratory illnesses caused by an uncommon virus – Enterovirus 68.
Physicians say this particular virus is more likely to severely sicken infants and teens, but most of those who are infected feel like they have a common cold.
EV-D68 presents with cold-like symptoms, such as fever, coughing, body aches and a runny nose. It may also cause breathing problems or wheezing. When parents notice high fever, dehydration or trouble breathing they should immediately take their child in to see their primary care provider or to see a provider at an urgent care clinic. (MORE)
