ENTEROVIRUS 68: More suspected cases reported in Connecticut

“We can confirm that we are treating children with respiratory illnesses at Connecticut Children’s who have exhibited symptoms of Enterovirus D68,” said hospital spokesman Bob Fraleigh, in a statement Friday night. “At this point it is important to note they are possible cases, not confirmed cases.

ALSO: Ebola is still spreading.

“The second possibility is one that virologists are loath to discuss openly but are definitely considering in private: that an Ebola virus could mutate to become transmissible through the air.”
