Hospitals across the U.S., especially in Missouri and Illinois, are seeing more children with severe respiratory illness caused by enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). Several states are also investigating similar clusters of severe respiratory illness. There are no vaccines for preventing EV-D68 infections. Clinicians should consider EV-D68 as a potential cause of clusters of severe respiratory illness, particularly in children. During this COCA call, clinicians will learn about the current EV-D68 situation in the U.S., laboratory testing, reporting suspected clusters, and approaches to prevention and treatment.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:
- Discuss the current EV-D68 situation in the United States, including clusters in Missouri and Illinois
- Describe the procedures for laboratory testing and reporting clusters of suspected cases
- Explain prevention and treatment strategies to address EV-D68
