EV-D68 is one of many non-polio enteroviruses. This virus was first identified in California in 1962, but it has not been commonly reported in the US.
Clusters of cases were recently reported in six states. Pennsylvania does not have any confirmed cases.
EV-D68 can cause mild to severe respiratory illness. The mild symptoms may include fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, body and muscle aches.
Severe symptoms may include difficulty breathing and wheezing. People with asthma may have a higher risk for severe respiratory illness.
This virus is spread from person to person by way of respiratory secretions, such as saliva, nasal mucus, or sputum. It likely spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or touches contaminated surfaces.
People with asthma are at higher risk for respiratory illnesses and should regularly take medicines and maintain control of their illness during this time, including taking influenza vaccine. Asthma can also be controlled by avoiding the triggers that can cause an attack, such as tobacco smoke.
You can protect yourself by following these steps:
