Rare Respiratory Virus Now Making Its Way Across the U.S., Sending Kids to ER

Just a heads up, apparently a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68 (EV68) is sending kids to the hospital all over the Midwest and it just keeps spreading.

To be clear up front, for most people, this virus causes nothing more than a really crappy cold with the regular crappy cold symptoms. For young kids who suffer from asthma, however, this particular virus can be pretty dangerous.

Here are a few headlines to give you an idea:

Rare virus might be causing central Ohio kids’ respiratory illnesses

Mystery Respiratory Virus Likely to Hit Kids Across Country

Respiratory Virus Spreads Among Children In Illinois, Missouri

Rare Virus Strikes Colorado, Children Fill Intensive Care Units

Serious respiratory virus hits 10 states, including Ga.

Cases of rare respiratory illness could be ‘tip of iceberg,’ cases seen in NC

Virus closely related to "Bird Flu", or "Chicken House Fever".
