Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) Respiratory Illness & Acute Flaccid Paralysis Surveillance

As of September 30, 2014, 472 cases of EV-D68 have been confirmed in 41 states, including seven cases in California: six in southern California residents, and one case has been identified in northern California. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) are investigating a cluster of pediatric patients hospitalized with acute flaccid paralysis and spinal cord lesions in Colorado; the possible linkage of these to the respiratory illness outbreak is still under investigation. Some of the Colorado cases with neurologic illness had respiratory specimens test positive for EV-D68.
