New Jersey Finds More EV D68 in Morris, Camden, Middlesex and Mercer Counties

Enterovirus D 68 is increasing its presence in New Jersey.

The respiratory virus that affects mainly children has infected over 500 children in most U.S. states since about mid-August.

NBC 10 Philadelphia reports that according to the New Jersey Department of Health, 5 new cases of EV D68 have been confirmed in New Jersey. Cases were found in Camden County, Mercer County, Middlesex County, and two in Morris County.

EV D68 was first discovered in California in 1962. Anne Schuchat of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the number of potential cases of the virus is "higher than expected for this time of year." Schuchat said, according to The Washington Post, "This is the right time of year for enterovirus infections."
