A common virus is putting more children in the hospital than in recent years

A respiratory virus that emerges every two years is causing an increase in child hospitalizations in some parts of the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC said earlier this month that more children and adolescents tested positive for a type of enterovirus called EV-D68 in July and August this year than in the same two-month period in 2019, 2020 and 2021. It also said that hospitals in several US regions had informed the agency in August of an increasing number of hospitalizations of pediatric patients who tested positive for rhinoviruses or enteroviruses.
