Double Not Good: Enterovirus D68 Outbreak

Update  Moving To Phase II Of The Enterovirus “Coverage”

But what one expert says is pretty funny:

Dr. Matthew Davis, the state’s Chief Medical Executive with the Michigan Department of Community Health, said that “While it’s theoretically possible that someone from any part of the world can bring an infection to another part of the world, it seems unlikely that children from Central America have brought this particular enterovirus strain into the United States.”

Davis said he did not know whether the EV-D68 strain was common in Central America.

He doesn’t know if its in Central America but he knows it didn’t come from there.

An outbreak of respiratory illness first observed in the Midwest has spread to 38 states, sending children to hospitals and baffling scientists trying to understand its virulent resurgence.

‘We have no idea where this virus could have come from.  None.  Really.’

This wouldn’t have anything to do with the government seeding the various states with illegal immigrant children, who might have brought this mostly child-based virus to the US?
