Enterovirus D68 Is Scary

I just wrote a column about this new virus, called Enterovirus D68, that is now affecting children in 43 U.S. states. More troubling than the severe respiratory symptoms is the now-baffling limb paralysis that some patients are experiencing.

Here's the column: http://lapostexaminer.com/enterovirus-d68-prevention-keep-sick-children-home/2014/10/09

Have children wash their hands, keep them home when having symptoms, and don't panic - hopefully it will fade by the end of November!
