Enterovirus Comes to NW Ohio

A res­pi­ra­tory virus that’s hos­pi­tal­ized more than 500 chil­dren nation­wide may be sick­en­ing kids in North­west Ohio. 795 chil­dren were treated in local emer­gency rooms in the region between Sep­tem­ber 1st and Sep­tem­ber 9th, and 224 of those cases were res­pi­ra­tory ill­nesses. Enterovirus is an uncom­mon strain of a virus that’s sim­i­lar to what causes the com­mon cold, but can cause asthma-like wheez­ing in kids that usu­ally don’t have that symptom.
