Enteroviruses Update:

Enteroviruses are very common viruses, and fall is a common time for enterovirus to cause respiratory illness. Enterovirus D68 infections are less common than infections with other enteroviruses. Seven cases of enterovirus D68 have been identified in New Hampshire so far, but there are cases in most U.S. states. Infants, children, and teenagers are more likely than adults to get infected with enteroviruses and become sick. Symptoms can include a runny nose, sore throat, cough, wheezing, rash and fever. There are no vaccines for preventing enterovirus D68 infections.
