Enterovirus D68 (HEV 68) case is becoming worst day by day, affecting hundreds of children everyday.
A very strong brutal virus, which are infected hundreds of children in the entire US region. This brutal respiratory disease is just supposed by the pathologist as a rare respiratory viral pathogen Enterovirus 68 — also known as HEV 68, which is impacting mostly children, including numerous people in Colorado.
Firstly, this virus is discovered in one 13-year-old, who was discovered unconscious and hardly breathing on Wednesday. He was shifted on a ventilator and has gradually improved, but he was still in the hospital’s intensive care unit as of Friday.
It is breaking serious news that in a Kansas City more than five hundred were admitted to the local hospital, and at least 60 of them admitted in ICU, spokesperson Jake Jacobson said.
The disease causes, indications like a cold, nausea, coughing, headache, swelling and worse inflammation, and it is spreading up to 30 children a day to seek care at one Kansas City hospital, where about 15% of the children were placed in intensive care, the hospital administrator said.
The city government said that this virus is now stricken in Colorado, Illinois and Ohio, and all the reported cases with indications similar to the same virus and are awaiting test results.
Actually, this virus is not identified yet because it attacks on the human body so intensively. A normal kid under the age of 15 will affect by this virus so all the hospital announced that no young kids are allowed in hospital area. But on the same time it will also affect on mature ones because it’s easily spread from person to person through contact with respiratory secretions. Sadly, this often means that parents with young children will also ill and it is even harder to take care of your child when you are sick and feeling dreadfully yourself.
The precautions of this virus are washing your hand properly. Don’t visit to the sick people and if you are infected by this virus so stay at home. In this virus, you may suffer breathing problems so keep your asthma control with the help of medicines. Drink only contaminated free water and take bath properly.
