Rare Respiratory Virus, Paralysis Spreads Among US Kids

“There will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in divers places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows.  But he who stands firm to the end will be saved.”   Matt 24:7-8 / Matt 24:13

Washington (AFP) – An unusual respiratory virus, Enterovirus D68, has sickened more than 400 children across the United States, and the emergence of sudden paralysis in some Colorado youths is sparking concern among doctors.

Experts are struggling to understand why so many young people — ranging in age from one to 18 — have fallen ill from the virus in the past two months.

Now Health officials are investigating nine cases of muscle weakness/paralysis in Colorado children, to see whether the culprit might be theis same virus causing severe respiratory illness across the country.
