Current states in USA affected :


At present over 40 states

Currently affected Provinces in Canada:

Alberta, Ontario

==============Original Post==============

The Enterovirus 68 virus has hit the USA and spread to 10 states in less than 20 days and is expected to spread to every state within the continental United States.

Dr. Richard Besser said:

It is only 10 states now, but it's going to be across the country. So if your state doesn't have it now, watch for it, it's coming

In Colorado alone the Enterovirus 68 virus has sent nearly a thousand kids to a hospital.

-----edit----
September 13 2014
This situation is now critical. As of 3pm September 12 there were 12 states with confirmed cases. That was 9 hours ago and already 2 more states have confirmed cases bringing the total states with confirmed cases of this horrid virus to a total of 14 states. Once again , due to the speed at which this is spreading the CDC is expecting this to spread to every state within the continental United States

A quick update. It is now not only spread to another state in the U.S.A. (Pennsylvania) but has also spread into parts of Canada.

Not so much deadly, but disabling to the children. In the words of professionals it leaves kids disabled. Whether or not this is permanent for those infected is a question I will have to research.

Yes it is for kids. The information we have suggests that the virus targets ages 2 months to 20 years and is extremely disabling.

Also, there are now confirmed reports in over 40 states (as of the time of this post)

The H1N1 virus also targets specific age groups, so this is nothing new.
