Regional Public Health News Release: Prevention is key to slowing spread of respiratory illness caused by Enterovirus D68
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 9, 2014
Local health officials say hand washing and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces will go a long way to slow the spread Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), the virus causing respiratory illness in people across the Midwest, including Kansas City.
Enteroviruses are very common, and most do not cause significant disease. However, EV-D68 is a rare type that can cause difficulty breathing and mimic an asthma attack. Most people who are infected will have the symptoms of a common cold, but some may develop severe symptoms and need to seek medical attention.
