This mysterious respiratory illness is now paralysing children in Colorado.
Doctors and medical forces are baffled. A US nationwide alert has been sent!
An outbreak of a respiratory illness in children is taking a frightening turn in Colorado as some young victims are now experiencing paralysis. Each of nine children at Children’s Hospital in Aurora have some sort of respiratory illness but recently started showing symptoms of muscle weakness and some have loss of feeling in their arms or legs. When doctors ran a few tests, four of those children had concerning results, and now health officials have sent out a nationwide alert.
Of those nine children, four tested positive for enterovirus 68 — the virus causing severe respiratory illness across the US. However, health officials cannot say for certain if the polio-like symptoms are caused by the virus.
