"...Although there's been no confirmed cases of the enterovirus at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, officials admitted 540 patients Friday..."
That's a record and it's due to .... panic?
Keith BieryGolick of Cincinnati.com quotes Derek Wheeler, associate chief of staff at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, who says:
"Although there's been no confirmed cases of the enterovirus ... officials admitted 540 patients Friday..." He reports that "...the number of patients began to spike around Labor Day, which means the virus should run its course in Greater Cincinnati sometime over the next week..." according to Wheeler.
"...Twelve states are reporting clusters of enterovirus illness: Alabama, Colorado, Michigan, Georgia, Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Utah...Six of those states -- Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Iowa -- have confirmed cases of Enterovirus D68, also known as EV-D68..."
