Enterovirus D68 Resource Page

There are approximentaly 100 types of enteroviruses known today. Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is a specific non-enveloped enterovirus which causes mild to severe respiratory illness. Symptoms can be as mild as cold-like illnesses to more severe infections which require medical attention because breathing can become difficult. Due to the lack of previous exposure to the virus, kids and teenagers tend to not have the protection against EV-D68 making them more at risk of getting infected. Touching surfaces or objects that have been contaminated by an infected person through respiratory secretions can lead to the spread of the virus to others.

The following is a collection of resources about Enterovirus.

As per PHO (Public Health Ontario): "Environmental disinfection of surfaces in healthcare settings should be performed using a hospital-grade disinfectant with a label claim of effectiveness against non-enveloped viruses."
